News has come of the appointment of Professor David Burdette, Director of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at Nottingham Law School, as an Extraordinary Professor at the Department of Mercantile Law within the Faculty of Law of the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein, South Africa. The appointment was made in recognition of David’s expertise in both South African and international corporate insolvency law. The appointment runs for a period of five years, from 1 May 2016 to 30 April 2021.

The Centre for Business and Insolvency Law has a strong relationship with the University of the Free State. In 2015, it played host to Dr Lézelle Jacobs, a lecturer at the South African University, who finalised her research while in Nottingham and also participated in the Joint Insolvency Conference organised by the centre in conjunction with the INSOL Europe Academics’ Forum and Radboud University, Nijmegen.

Dr Jacobs is also involved in a number of projects with the Nottingham team, including joint publications and bids for research funding. With David’s appointment at the University of the Free State, the centre looks forward to close collaboration between the two institutions.
