Professor David Burdette, Director of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at Nottingham Law School, was recently invited to speak at the 34th Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime, which took place over the week of 4 September – 11 September 2016 at Jesus College Cambridge. Professor Burdette's contribution was to a panel whose theme focused on the challenges for an effective corporate rescue regime in transitional states and the issues that poses for cross-border economic security and development.

Together with fellow panel members Professor Johan Henning and Dr Lézelle Jacobs, both of the Department of Mercantile Law at the University of the Free State, South Africa, Professor Burdette was able to share insights into the reform process in transitional states and the needs of emerging and developing nations for effective laws to enhance economic progress. Professor Burdette, who is also a Senior Consultant with the World Bank, was able to share some of his experience with the audience of his participation in law reform projects in countries within Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean, such as Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, the Seychelles, and Zimbabwe.
