Joint Conference on Applicable Law in Cross-Border Insolvency Proceedings

Date Friday 18-Saturday 19 September 2020
Location: National and University Library, Hrvatske Bratske Zajednice 4, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia
 
Details:
This conference, on applicable law in cross-border insolvency proceedings, builds on the framework in the European Insolvency Regulation. Anticipating the possibility of further work by the European Commission within the insolvency area, this conference seeks to explore contemporary legal views about the critical issues facing the identification of the appropriate law to apply to transactions, procedures and litigation within insolvency.

Interest has also been shown by UNCITRAL in work on the topic of applicable law with a colloquium being provisionally scheduled for 11 December in Vienna immediately after the Working Group V session. It is the intention of the organisers of the Zagreb event to present a report on any findings and conclusions arising from the Zagreb event to UNCITRAL on that occasion.

Jointly organised by the European Commission DG Justice and Consumers, the Ministry of Justice of Croatia, the Faculty of Law of the University of Zagreb and INSOL Europe, this conference will feature specialists from the international insolvency, private international law and other relevant fields.

Hosted in Zagreb, a vibrant city and capital of the latest member state of the European Union, the conference will take place at the premises of the National and University Library over a day and a half.

Further information on the agenda and a registration facility will be available shortly at the dedicated conference website at: <https://www.pravo.unizg.hr/ALCBIP>.
