Nottingham Law School news round up
At Nottingham Law School’s Centre for Business and Insolvency Law, 2016 got off to a globetrotting start.
In January, Professors David Burdette and Paul Omar lectured and acted as examiners at the highly regarded INSOL Global Insolvency Law and Practice Course in Dubai.
The Centre also welcomed Anto Kasak, Lecturer in Insolvency Law at the University of Tartu, Estonia, who visited NTU to continue his doctoral project and discuss research and teaching in the field.
Meanwhile, students from the second cohort of the Centre’s Dual LLM arrived in Nottingham from Nijmegen, in The Netherlands. The unique course sees students graduate with two awards: an LLM in European Law from Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen and an LLM in Corporate and Insolvency Law from Nottingham Law School.
Finally, PhD student Fancy Too successfully defended her thesis: A Comparative Analysis of Corporate Insolvency Law: Which is the Best Option for Kenya? Her research aims to establish the need for a new statutory insolvency framework in Kenya and contributes to the Centre’s commitment to foster critical thinking in younger scholars from emerging and developing economies.
