Professor Ginny GreimanAdministrative Sciences Professor Ginny Greiman has been asked by Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan to attend her congressional confirmation hearings this week – she’ll be a first-hand witness to this historical event.

Ginny was also quoted in a recent Bureau of National Affairs Bankruptcy Law Reporter article on the Kagan nomination. In the section, “Leading the News” she notes that:

“In my role as a public interest law adviser at Harvard Law School, I have had the distinct pleasure to work with Dean Kagan during her tenure at HLS [Harvard Law School] and have observed first hand her remarkable skills in working across the ideological spectrum as a consensus builder and a promoter of diverse views and honest debate,” said Professor Virginia A. Greiman of Boston University, Boston. “As a scholar of constitutional and administrative law, Dean Kagan will bring a unique perspective to the complex history of the bankruptcy system in the United States and will accord great deference to the complexities of the bankruptcy laws and the unique role that bankruptcy plays in the federal system, Greiman added. According to Greiman, who is on the advisory board of BNA’s Bankruptcy Law Reporter, Kagan’s “integrity and open mindedness will serve the court well during these tumultuous times in our country’s history.”
