New Leadership at the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law

Over the 2016-17 academic year, the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law has undergone a number of significant changes.

In October 2016, the Centre Director, Professor David Burdette, left Nottingham Law School to pursue other projects along with prominent Centre member, Professor Paul J Omar. Their contributions to the success of the Centre are profoundly appreciated and we all wish them continued success in the projects they are undertaking elsewhere.

Professor Burdette has been succeeded by Professor Rebecca Parry as the Centre Director, supported by Deputy Directors, Jennifer L L Gant and Mohd Hwaidi.

Professor Parry is an insolvency academic with research interests in international and comparative insolvency law with a focus on the UK, the USA, the EU and China. Her interests also intersect with company law, notably directors’ duties and directors’ disqualification. She is a prolific academic writer with many books, book chapters, and articles written in the field of insolvency law. Professor Parry is also the course leader for the Dual LLM in European and Insolvency Law in collaboration with Radboud University in the Nijmegen, the Netherlands and also teaches on a number of other LLM course modules. She also supervises several LLM and PhD students.

Jennifer is an early career researcher in insolvency law and social policy and is a lecturer in contract law, commercial law, and critical legal thinking on the undergraduate programme. She also teaches on the Dual LLM and supervises LLM and PhD students, is a course leader for a distance learning LLM dissertation programme, as well as maintaining a respectable research profile. Jennifer will be the main point of contact for news items in the future, contactable here: jennifer.gant@ntu.ac.uk.

Mohd is an early career researcher in international commercial law with a focus on documentary letters of credit. He is the leader of the LLM International Sale of Goods module, co-module leader and lecturer on the undergraduate Commercial Law module. Mohd will be assisting in the leadership of the Centre going forward.

With these changes in leadership, a new perspective has been gained that has brought members of both the insolvency team and the business law team together to consider new areas of research, such as law and development. It will be exciting to encourage growth in this area as well as make use of new synergies to identify other fruitful areas of collaboration and research.
