The Centre for Business and Insolvency Law is pleased to announce that Jenny Gant, who was recently appointed Lecturer within the Nottingham Law School in September 2015, has now become the new Chair of the Young Academics' Network in Insolvency Law (YANIL).

YANIL was founded in 2009 by Professor Bob Wessels of the University of Leiden with the aim of bringing together doctoral candidates and post-doctoral early career researchers in a supportive environment. Through this, cross-border collaborations and exchanges of information are encouraged. Members of YANIL are also supported in giving papers at the sessions devoted to presentations by younger academics at each of the annual conferences of the INSOL Europe Academic Forum, the Europe-wide association of academics and researchers in insolvency law and practice.

Jenny, whose research interests focus on the intersection between business rescue and employment protection, was also the first recipient in December 2014 of INSOL International's Ian Strang Founders Award, a prestigious international insolvency prize, for a paper arising from her project. The Centre, which is committed to fostering critical thinking in insolvency and business matters, particularly among younger scholars, is pleased at Jenny's recognition by scholars from across Europe and wishes her success in this new role.
