This article describes a program of research that applies social analytic jurisprudence to test some of the assumptions in consumer bankruptcy law and policy.4 Our work first seeks to describe selected provisions from the newly enacted bankruptcy amendments that pertain to enhanced disclosure requirements, and then to locate some of the behavioral assumptions implicit in these provisions. 5 Next, we assess the accuracy of these assumptions based on an experiment that we conducted looking at a simulated online shopping trip that we constructed specifically to test the effects of enhanced disclosure
