Members of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at Nottingham Law School descended on London for the 18th annual colloquium of the INSOL International Academics' Group, which took place from 13-15 July 2016 at the Grange, St Paul's Hotel, in the shadow of St Paul's Cathedral in London. The event, which gathers together insolvency researchers, scholars, judges and practitioners from around the world, was attended by over 60 members from over 15 different countries, including a large team from Nottingham Law School.

While at the conference, members of the Centre volunteered presentations on the role of creditors in the management of insolvency procedures (Professor David Burdette), the social costs in insolvencies of franchise operations (Dr Jennifer Gant) and the extra-territorial approach of the United States courts in cross-border insolvencies (Professor Adrian Walters). Professor Paul Omar was also invited to provide a few thoughts during the conference dinner about the consequences of Brexit on insolvency practice in the United Kingdom.

Also at the conference dinner, Professor Burdette made a presentation of a bound copy of Volume 3 of the Nottingham Insolvency and Business Law eJournal to Professor Ian Fletcher, the former head of the Academics' Group. The papers gathered together in the volume, numbering some 30 contributions, are intended as a festschrift in recognition of Professor Fletcher's leadership in the field of domestic and international insolvency.
