About the Global Insolvency Practice Course
The Global Insolvency Practice Course is a result of the large interest that the INSOL membership demonstrated for an advanced educational qualification focusing on international insolvency. The qualification received will bestow a Fellowship from INSOL International.
Modern business enterprises operate in multiple jurisdictions. The financial distress of a global business is no longer limited to a single jurisdiction and can no longer be addressed by a single jurisdiction’s insolvency system.
The fast growing number of cross-border insolvency cases and the adoption in many jurisdictions of rescue regimes and cross-border insolvency procedures present new challenges to the turnaround and insolvency profession. Practitioners and turnaround experts need to have extensive knowledge of the transnational and international aspects of the legal and financial problems facing a business in distress. The Global Insolvency Practice Course provides this knowledge.
The style of the fellowship programme is intensive, carried out over three short periods, so those taking the course must can dedicate the time and energy needed to get the most out of the opportunity. Many sessions are interactive and each requires the full attention of the participants.

Benjamin Jones, Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP, Fellow, INSOL International Class of 2014 / 2015:
The Fellowship course was an immensely rewarding experience, if not at times towards the end pretty intense! The teaching really takes off where the text books and cases end, giving you a first-hand insight from the experts of the law and practice of cross-border insolvency and the strategy and tactics that go into achieving successful cross-border insolvency proceedings and restructurings. What I most enjoyed was the camaraderie and insight of the other fellowship candidates. I can’t imagine any other forum exists for twenty practitioners from around the world, each working at the coal face of their local restructuring and insolvency markets, to get together over a number of months to discuss and debate in detail the intricacies of the international framework of insolvency law.
Johan T. Jol, ABN AMRO Bank N.V. and Legal Houdini Academy, Fellow, INSOL International, Class of 2013:
"It is a unique combination of experienced law lecturers and practitioners from all over the world who are teaching not only theoretical law but also even more important daily practice of legal, economics and turnaround aspects of international restructurings and/or liquidations. The endgame is indeed a great finale to this learning experience".
Mahesh Uttamachandani, Global Product Specialist, Debt Resolution & Business Exit, World Bank Group
" The fellowship programme will be a very rewarding investment towards a successful career, both through helping the development of professional skills and through fostering a greater understanding of different jurisdictions cultures and systems"
Professor Ian Fletcher of University College London, a member of the Core Committee responsible for planning the programme
" Designed and taught by an international Faculty of highly distinguished experts, the INSOL Fellowship Programme offers a unique learning experience. It answers a long - felt demand for a benchmark qualification to identify those practitioners who are in the front rank of transnational insolvency practice in toady's challenging gloabl market place" .
David Molton, Brown Rudnick LLP, Fellow, INSOL International, Class of 2012
"This INSOL Fellowship course is wholly first class. It is professionally administered by INSOL International staff and taught by an exceptional, international faculty (comprised of academics and judges), all of whom are rocognised as leaders in their fields of discipline. the course work is robust, challenging and rewarding, and provides material value to insolvency practitioners and attorneys involved in cross-border issues. The hidden treasure of the course is, of course, the interchange, camaraderie and lasting friendships of the Fellow candidates that inevitably develop during the course. I would strongly recommend the course as a "must do" for anyone who is interested in and serious about cross-border insolvency issues."
D. Farrington Yates, Dentons US LLP, Fellow, INSOL International, Class of 2009
"This program exceeded my expectations for level of instruction, content, and the commitment of my fellow participants. It has been a pleasure to be part of this class"
Stathis Potamitis, Potamitisvakris, Fellow, INSOL International, Class of 2009
"I found the course remarkably rewarding and interesting and the final module was perhaps the richest part of the course, overall. I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to participate. I also found my fellow fellows a wonderful group, knowledgeable, friendly and energetic. The Faculty was obviously excellent, as were the judges. Overall, this course seems far better than other offerings I have come across."
Justin Cadman, McLaren Knight, Fellow, INSOL International, Class of 2009
"The whole course was professionally run and administrated from start to finish. INSOL International should be very proud of the course facilitators, support staff and lecturers – it was their drive and commitment to the course that I think makes it such an informative yet pleasurable learning experience.
