This course strengthens participant knowledge of Cross-Border Insolvency and provides participants with important insights on risks, recovery, UNCITRAL, bankruptcy categories, jurisdiction, and receivership among other critical issues and best practices. In addition, major substantive and procedural fundamentals and developments will be explored through lecture, in-class discussion, and real-world case studies.

Inadequate cross-border insolvency policies negatively impact a country's financial and institutional stress and security. It inhibits foreign direct investment; burdens judicial systems; leads to asset outflow; and increases recovery time of financial downturns. Comprehensive legal frameworks that target domestic and international proceedings can counteract these consequences and attract investments and minimize lending risks. 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.
