Virtual Law Workshop gathers PhD Researchers from Europe and beyond in Leiden
From 4 to 5 March 2021, the Stichting (Foundation) Bob Wessels Insolvency Law Collection (BWILC) organised the third edition of the PhD Workshop on European and International Insolvency Law. The participants had the chance to be part of an inspiring and interactive two-day virtual workshop.

The presentations covered a broad spectrum of topics, including insolvency and bitcoins, subordination of (affiliated) claims, executory contracts, public policy and the role of the insolvency law practitioner, employee protection in insolvency, as well as discussions about insolvency law from an economics perspective.
The BWILC board, composed of Professors Matthias HaentjensReinout VriesendorpStephan MadausJoeri Vananroyeand Dr. Paul Omar, along with Professor Bob Wessels (patron) and alumni from previous workshops were present. Each presentation was followed by an extensive Q&A session, raising questions and providing insightful feedback to further the research.
