As part of INSOL International's commitment to working more closely with its academic members, INSOL is looking to appoint a scholar every two years for a period of two years. The purpose of the INSOL Scholar Award is to work with a scholar on a specific area of research for the benefit of not only the academic members, but also for the benefit of INSOL International's general membership. The research paper will be published as an INSOL International publication and made available for the entire INSOL membership of over 10,000 members.
Applications for the INSOL Scholar Award for 2020/2021 closed on 31 October 2019. There has been huge interest in the Award, reflected by the high number of very strong applications and interesting paper proposals received, making the selection of a Scholar a particularly difficult task for the independent panel appointed for this purpose.
We are delighted to announce that the recipient of the INSOL Scholar Award for 2020/2021 is Professor Gerard McCormack,
University of Leeds, UK, who will be writing a research paper on “Priorities and Fairness in Insolvency and Business Restructuring”.
Gerard is a long-standing member of the INSOL International Academic Group and a frequent speaker and attendee at INSOL Academic Colloquia. We congratulate Gerry on his appointment and look forward to working with him over the next two years in his capacity as the INSOL Scholar.
