Georgetown law professor Adam Levitin joins Fresh Air to discuss the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act, which President Obama recently signed into law.

The new legislation aims to increase the transparency and fairness of credit card companies' dealings with their cardholders.

Professor Levitin specializes in bankruptcy and commercial law. His research includes work on credit card regulation, mortgage lending, and identity theft. He writes for the Credit Slips blog.
