"The Academic Forum of INSOL Europe will be hosting a conference, jointly with the University of Milan, Italy, on Thursday 31 March – Friday 1 April 2011.
Expressions of interest in delivering papers on the following themes are invited:
(a) Reform of the European Insolvency Regulation;
In advance of the review of the European Insolvency Regulation and the anticipated tender process announced for 2011 for a report into the workings of the text, designed to identify the lacunae, problems and necessary amendments that could be the subject of a revised text, this topic will address the areas that could usefully be reviewed.
(b) Reform of National Insolvency Laws;
As member states of the European Union and related states carry out ongoing reviews of their domestic substantive laws, this topic will address current initiatives in developed countries, countries in transition and would-be accession candidates.
Interest in delivering a paper on these and any other suitably related themes may be communicated to Paul Omar, Secretary, Academic Forum by e-mail:
