The blogs include contributions from law students as well as notable guest authors and cover an array of topics from the diverse and multifarious areas of business and commercial laws.

About the Blog Series Competition

The Code is one of the most dynamic statutes enacted in the past decade and its implementation has unfolded numerous novel perspectives to the legal framework which highlight the existing lacunae and incertitude in the law. There is still room for novel discourse on the Code and in the broader field of insolvency.

The Blog Series Competition aims to further discourse on the practical and critical challenges faced by the insolvency regime in the country and offer novel and innovative solutions for such challenges.

The Editorial Board of RFMLR and IBBI invite students to submit manuscripts on the main theme to contribute to the discourse around insolvency and related issues. After reviewing all the manuscripts, the Editorial Board will select entries that will be published on the RFMLR Blog under the Insolvency Series.

About the Conference

The Blog Series Competition will be followed by a Conference where the officials from IBBI and other professionals from the field of insolvency would discuss emerging issues pertaining to the insolvency regime in India. The results of the Blog Series Competition will be announced during the Conference wherein the winners would present their research before the experts and the attendees.

This would not only give the attendees insights into the vital issues in insolvency but also give them a unique opportunity to interact with the experts from the field.

We welcome academics, practitioners, and students from all fields to attend the Conference on January 30, 2022.
