This one-week seminar on advanced cross-border insolvency will compare insolvency regimes, analyze model laws, discuss domestic needs and limitations, and introduce the latest developments in the field. Through this course, participants will be able to consider current and potential reforms addressing their country's bankruptcy policies.
