Ground breaking, bipartisan federal legislation developed from research by Loyola University Chicago alumnus Paul Kantwill (BA ’83, JD ’86), a distinguished professor in residence at Loyola’s School of Law, was introduced this week in Washington, D.C. by members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives. The landmark bill, called the Veterans and Consumer Fair Credit Act, would establish the country’s first national usury law that imposes interest rate limitations on nearly all financial products and services in an effort to protect consumers from predatory lenders.
Loyola University Chicago’s School of Law has named nationally renowned legal scholar Barry Sullivan, JD, as its inaugural George Anastaplo Professor of Constitutional Law and History. The professorship was established to honor the distinguished career of the late George Anastaplo, a prolific legal scholar who joined Loyola University Chicago’s full-time law faculty in 1981 and taught until his death in 2014.
