Distinguished law scholar Elizabeth Warren teaches contract law, bankruptcy, and commercial law at Harvard Law School. She is an outspoken critic of America's credit economy, which she has linked to the continuing rise in bankruptcy among the middle-class.
According to Warren, she has "spent decades writing academic books and teaching an entire generation of law students about the rules of money." Those "rules" include the formal statutes of commercial law, the policy issues inherent in them, and the ethical problems they can produce. Warren joined the faculty of Harvard University in 1992 and has served as the Leo Gottlieb Professor of Law since 1995.
