Members of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at Nottingham Law School were in London recently to attend a Workshop on Teaching and Researching in Insolvency at the London School of Economics, held on 13 July 2016. The purpose of the workshop, hosted by Dr Sarah Paterson and Dr Joseph Spooner, was to provide an occasion to discuss opportunities and challenges in teaching and researching in insolvency, to share experiences from around the globe and to stimulate professional development of participating academics in the field of insolvency.

As part of the teaching focus of one of the afternoon sessions, Mrs Paula Moffatt, Reader at Nottingham Law School, was invited to address the group on the challenges involved in setting up a collaborative academic programme. Paula was able to use the experience of the Dual LLM in Insolvency, run jointly by the Nottingham Law School and Radboud University Nijmegen, and which is now in its second year. In the second session Professor David Burdette was on a panel to discuss insolvency research and focused on the importance of mentoring early career researchers. All members of the Centre who were present at the workshop, which included Dr Jennifer Gant, were able to contribute their experience as researchers in the field.
