About the Conference
The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 (‘Code’) is one of the most dynamic statutes enacted in the past decade and its implementation has unfolded numerous novel perspectives to the legal framework which highlight the existing lacunae and incertitude in the law. There is still room for novel discourse on the Code and in the broader field of insolvency.
The Editorial Board of RFMLR and IBBI thus invited students to submit manuscripts on the various sub-themes to contribute to the discourse around insolvency and related issues. After reviewing all the manuscripts, the Editorial Board will select entries that will be published on the RFMLR Blog under the Insolvency Series.
The Blog Series Competition is followed by the Conference where officials from IBBI and other professionals from the field of insolvency shall discuss emerging issues pertaining to the insolvency regime in India in the form of a Panel Discussion.
The results of the Blog Series Competition will be announced during the Conference wherein the winners would briefly present their research before the experts and the attendees. This would not only give the attendees insights into the vital issues in insolvency but also give them a unique opportunity to interact with the experts from the field.
