William Organek

I research corporate bankruptcy law.

My research investigates bankruptcy's operation as a system of public law regulation and private law ordering.  I develop case studies with a blend of empirical analysis and insights from law and economics.  I also draw on on my legal and business experience in bankruptcy and real estate.  By probing the users of, uses for, and limits of the bankruptcy system, my research aims to assess how it can be optimized for the wide variety of public and private cases to which it is applied.

Current Position

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Law at the Zicklin School of Business, Baruch College, City University of New York.

I am also the Managing Editor of the Harvard Law School Bankruptcy Roundtable.
