Two day National Conference on “Insolvency and Bankruptcy Law: Emerging Issues and Challenges”

Date: November 3 & 4th 2017.


About The Conference

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 is considered to be the biggest economic reform introduced in India to play a significant role in limiting the risks of credit. IBC, 2016 consolidates and amends the law relating to insolvency resolution process in India. The effects of the advent of the Code seem to be far reaching for lenders, financial institutions, corporates and also for professionals, giving them scope to act as resolution professionals. Bankruptcy law aims at providing rescue mechanism for distressed entities, facilitating faster windup of insolvent entities and providing an easier exit route to investors. How far the I&B Code, 2016 is successful in ensuring an investor friendly bankruptcy framework is to be examined in detail.  In this context, School of Legal Studies is organising a Two Day National Conference on  “Insolvency and Bankruptcy Law: Emerging Issues and Challenges”  to deliberate upon the key issues such as economic and social perspectives of insolvency law, challenges in implementation of I& B Code, functions of regulatory bodies and Insolvency Professionals under the code and  corporate insolvency resolution process.
