Columbia Law School Shares Research from A&M-Commerce Professor

    Columbia Law School’s blog recently published research by Regents Professor Srinivas Nippani from A&M-Commerce, and Associate Professor Nizan Geslevich Packin from Baruch College, City University of New York.

    Their research discusses efforts by the U.S. government to end discrimination by banks against minority families. Examples of these efforts include the Fair Housing Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, and the Consumer Financial Protection Act of 2010.

    Nippani and Packin argue that banks need to do more to end discrimination. They offer an analysis of issues with the current system and conclude by suggesting a rating system for banks based on diversity, equity and inclusion.
