Event Description

The Murphy Institute Center on Law and the Economy hosts workshops each semester featuring both Tulane and guest faculty in law, economics, and political science who present leading edge research in regulation, civil rights, and other key issues in law and the economy.

Nicole Langston is a bankruptcy scholar whose research examines the interplay between bankruptcy, commercial law, consumer law, and the social cost of debt to address economic inequality. Professor Langston's most recent work examines how the inconsistent treatment of debt in the consumer bankruptcy system follows recognizable racial and socioeconomic lines of vulnerability and marginalization. Her work is forthcoming in the California Law Review.

Prior to joining Vanderbilt Law, Professor Langston was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Boston College Law School. Previously, she practiced as a bankruptcy litigator with Kirkland & Ellis and Latham & Watkins. She also served as a law clerk to Judge Peter J. Walsh and Judge Laurie Selber Silverstein of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware and Judge Bernice Donald of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
