The Centre for Business and Insolvency Law is pleased to announce that Paula Moffatt has been awarded her professional doctorate on the successful conclusion of her viva on 12 October 2016.

Paula Moffatt, who is Reader in Banking Law at Nottingham Law School and a member of the Centre, undertook her doctoral studies within the Centre under the supervision of Professors David Burdette and Paul Omar from 2013 onwards, submitting her thesis in Summer 2016. Her work, which focused on the evolution of the framework for property ownership in the case of dematerialised assets typically the object of investment transactions, was praised by the externals Professor Matthias Haentjens of the University of Leiden and Professor Sarah Paterson of the London School of Economics as an original contribution to the discourse on the workings of the global financial markets. Paula’s recent work on the challenges facing the frameworks for large-scale insolvencies involving financial institutions has also resulted in a number of works, including a chapter jointly authored with Professor Andrew Campbell of Leeds University that has recently appeared in the Research Handbook on Crisis Management in the Banking Sector published by Edward Elgar.

The Centre, which has gained a reputation worldwide for the promotion of research and teaching in insolvency and is committed to fostering critical thinking in insolvency and business matters, is pleased to be able to congratulate Paula on her well-deserved success.
