The Centre for Business Law and Insolvency is pleased to announce that Jenny Gant, currently a Doctoral Researcher on the PhD programme within the Centre, has accepted the position of Lecturer within the Nottingham Law School as of 1 September 2015.

Jenny has been undertaking her doctoral studies within the Centre under the supervision of Professors David Burdette and Paul Omar from 2012 onwards and is due to submit in autumn 2015.

She was the recipient of a Vice-Chancellor's Bursary, an award only open to students who completed their master's studies with distinction, and which has enabled her to develop her project on the theme of Rescue before a Fall: An Anglo-French Analysis of the Balance Between Business Rescue and Employment Protection.

Her research examines the historical, socio-economic, cultural and specific jurisdictional aspects contributing to the evolution of employment protection regulation and its intersection with the goals of corporate rescue in the United Kingdom and France.

The research attempts to provide an understanding of how the two systems have developed different trajectories with view to understanding the obstacles within the European Union that may affect the alignment or coordination of employment protection rules across the member states.

In December 2014, Jenny was also the first recipient of INSOL International's Ian Strang Founders Award, a prestigious international insolvency prize, for a paper arising from her project, titled Studies in Convergence? Post-Crisis Effects on Corporate Rescue and the Influence of Social Policy: The EU and the USA.

Jenny is already an accomplished speaker at insolvency conferences, having been invited to deliver papers in Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Leiden, Paris and San Francisco. She has also had a number of articles published in journals, such as the Nottingham Insolvency and Business Law e-Journal, the International Insolvency Review and the South African Law Journal.

The Centre, which has gained a reputation worldwide for the promotion of research and teaching in insolvency, is pleased to welcome Jenny, whose appointment demonstrates the breadth and depth of the Centre's commitment to foster critical thinking in insolvency and business matters, particularly among younger scholars.
