Nottingham Trent University (pictured) Law School's Insolvency and Corporate Law Research Group (ICLRG) one day conference is due to take place on 15 September 2010. The running order for the day has now been announced and it looks very interesting indeed. I cannot go as I will be at the SLS conference at Southampton University chairing the open session.
