Honours Class: Comparative and International Insolvency Law
Registration open now for students interested to follow these classes from March - June 2009!
The Honours Class aims to be an extremely enriching academic experience, both for motivated students as well as for the lecturers. For students the classes will offer an in depth insight and overview of central themes in cross-border insolvency. For some of them it will be an excellent preparation for conducting more advanced research within their academic career, e.g. writing the master thesis. Honours Classes are an inspiring experience, as the classes give the opportunity to see close by how principle academic knowledge and practical application are developing. With the finest instructors in the global field students will be challenged to test the limits of their capabilities. In all, our goal is for you to say, in Summer 2009: the Honours Class provided a real look “in the kitchen” or “behind the scenes” of contemporary international insolvency science!
