13 August 2009 – Visiting Fellows Programme: International Insolvency Law by Professor Ian Fletcher from 26 to 27 August 2009

The Singapore Academy of Law is organising a Visiting Fellows Programme supported by the Insolvency Practitioners Association of Singapore (IPAS) on International Insolvency Law from 26 – 27 August 2009 at the Supreme Court Viewing Gallery.

The programme will look at the special problems that are encountered when a debtor’s insolvency occurs in circumstances where the laws of two or more different countries may be applicable, or where insolvency proceedings can potentially take place in more than one country. This can come about where assets, business interests and/or creditors of an insolvent enterprise are located in two or more jurisdictions, or where there have been dealings or transactions which are governed by the laws of different countries from those to which the debtor is primarily subject. The insolvency laws of every country tend to have some aspects which are unique to that jurisdiction.
