Thirteenth INSOL/UNCITRAL/World Bank Multinational Judicial Colloquium on Insolvency

Monday 1 April and Tuesday 2 April 2019 Closed Meeting

This is the Thirteenth Judicial Colloquium which have been organised with the support of UNCITRAL and the World Bank Group.

These Colloquiums have brought together judges, regulators and judicial officials from around the world to consider a wide range of insolvency-related issues. These issues have included judicial co-operation in cases of cross-border insolvency, access to courts by insolvency practitioners and recognition of insolvency administrations by foreign courts.

The Thirteenth Joint Multinational Colloquium has an extremely important agenda. With the growth of cross-border trade, the number of insolvency cases where there are assets in more than one jurisdiction, or where there are cross-border groups will inevitably increase. The Colloquium will assist participants to understand the developments in the handling of such cases. It will compare the judicial and juridical practice in dealing with practical and theoretical issues arising in cross-border insolvency cases in a number of jurisdictions representing all major legal systems. We will also consider best court practices for domestic insolvency proceedings.

The Colloquium is a closed meeting, open to judges, civil servants from relevant ministries and judicial administrators. For further information please contact Penny Robertson at pennyr@insol.ision.co.uk
