On my blog I have reported several times about this project. In Berlin, begin June, at the Humboldt University a full day discussion took place. See for a status report and a report of the discussions.
“The session benefited from good discussion and comment”, “The lecturer was interesting, clear and informative”, “You could see that a lot of time was spent preparing – truly appreciated”, “A lively and intellectually stimulating session”, “Good mix of EC Regulation and practical material”. These are some of the comments INSOL International received in the evaluation of the first module of the INSOL International Global Insolvency Practice Course, held in June 2008 at the University of Leiden, Leiden Law School (the Netherlands). Twenty six participants from twelve jurisdictions are following this Course, which will lead to the designation of Fellow of INSOL International. See for a short report
