Clinic Professor’s Work Featured in News and Print
Posted on October 8, 2013
In recent months, University of Arkansas Law Professor Tim Tarvin has been a frequent contributor to news stories and columns on bankruptcy and money management. He also has produced a new work of scholarship on discharge of student loans and has presented his scholarship widely.
Tarvin, who heads both the law school’s Federal Clinic and its Transactional Clinic, provided expert commentary to the Bargaineering.com story “Being bad with money doesn’t make you dumb.” He also is quoted extensively in the Loans.org story “Near-Hopeless to Discharge Student Loans Says Bankruptcy Lawyers.”
His article “From School Of Law (SOL) To Plain Old SOL: How The Bar Exam, Jobs Market, Bankruptcy Code And A Cup Of Coffee Made It Difficult For One Law Graduate Seeking To Find A Way Out Of Debt” was published in the re-launched Arkansas Law Notes.
Tarvin also has been active in presenting his work at CLE programs and conferences. He presented on September 25th in Little Rock to the Central Arkansas Debtor-Creditor Bar Association on his latest article, “The Privilege Against Self-Incrimination in Bankruptcy and the Plight of the Debtor,” which is set for publication in the Seton Hall Law Review in January 2014. He presented the same article both on October 2nd and then on October 5th at the Central States Law Schools Association annual meeting held at the School of Law. Tarvin also served as a panelist for “Teaching Collaborative Lawyering as a Culturally-Competent Practice-Ready Legal Skill” at the conference.
