    The INSOL EUROPE High Level Course on Insolvency Law in Eastern European Jurisdictions is an ambitious training project that for its first edition, will be held in Romania, both for the importance of the jurisdiction's legal tradition and for its recent reforms in the insolvency area.
    Our project received the full support and cooperation of the Minister of Justice, Ms Raluca Alexandra PRUNA and from the representatives of the National Institute of Magistracy as they believe we are prepared to assist in Romania's transition to a fully modern, efficient and best practice-compliant insolvency system.

    The National Institute for the Training of Insolvency Practitioners chaired by Simona MILOS also ensured the INSOL EUROPE High Level Course on Insolvency Law of full support and already decided to grant 20 points – which is the maximum - for the Continuing Professional Education for Insolvency Practitioners in Romania.

    The INSOL EUROPE High Level Course on Insolvency Law will be separated into 3 different modules which will be held on the following dates at CARO Hotel (164 A Barbu Văcărescu Blvd., 2nd district, 020285, Bucharest, Romania):
    • Module I. on 2 to 4 February 2017
    • Module II. on 29 June to 1 July 2017
    • Module III. on 19 January 2018

    The course will be opened to approx. 80 professionals involved in the insolvency practice of the jurisdiction, with special focus on high level lawyers and IPs, judges and state officials of the relevant insolvency agency.

    The Director of the Programme of the High Level Course, Prof. Ignacio Tirado (Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain) formed the following Committee of International Experts who already confirmed their participation:

    6. Prof. Michael Veder (Radboud University Nijmegen, Resor, The Netherlands) - Read CV
    7.  Alberto Núñez-Lagos (Uría Menéndez, Spain) - Read CV
    8. Mihaela Carpus-Carcea (Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers, European Commission) 

    The Committee of International Experts will be in charge of the Module I titled “International best practice and comparative examples” which will provide attendants with a general overview of international standards and best comparative examples concerning the main elements of business restructuring and insolvency. The first 2 days would cover the analysis from a theoretical perspective, although always including the provision of comparative examples of the systems existing in different jurisdictions as well as practical examples of cases and judicial decisions. The final day of this module will include two case study sessions.

    The Local Director, Radu Lotrean (CITR, Romania) formed the following Committee of Local Experts who already confirmed their participation:

    1. Simona Milos (National Institute for the Training of Insolvency Practitioners)
    2. Irina Sarcane (Target)
    3. Andreea Deli (Deli and Partners)
    4. Vasile Godinca (CITR)
    5. Judge Flavius Motu (Tribunalului Specializat Cluj)
    6. Prof. Radu Bufan (Universitatea de Vest)
    7. Bogdan Biter (CONSULTA 99)

    The Committee of Local Experts will be in charge of the Module II titled “An analysis of the main elements of the local system” which will be devoted to the analysis of a selected number of especially relevant topics of the local insolvency system. The specific topics are to be determined based on the special circumstances of the jurisdiction where the training takes place, to ensure a bespoke product is offered to attendants. The classes will take the form of a dialogue between a local and an international expert (from the Committee of International Experts), similar to the dynamics speaker-discussant now already widespread in academic workshops. The local experts will take the lead and the international expert will make comments/provide international examples by way of comparison. The idea of this “dialogue” approach is to engage attendants and to ensure proper theoretical and practical elements are conveyed at a high level.

    Module III titled “On line follow-up and case/paper submission” is the final part of the course which will consist of an on-line distant training. Participants will be provided with questionnaires, decisions and cases to solve during a period of 3 months. Correction and occasional on-line tutoring will be made available to participants during the said period. Each participant will then choose a topic of analysis, to be selected among a list of options provided by the Course organisers. They will have to write an essay of about 10.000 words on the topic. A committee appointed ad hoc will review the papers and choose the best for each topic. The committee will be composed of members of the Committee of Local Experts and of the Committee of International Experts. Those selected will present the paper at the final workshop of the course, to be delivered at the end of the year. A national expert will act as discussant of the paper and an international expert will chair the panels”.

    The main language will be English with simultaneous translation provided.
