Course content
International insolvency is still a mysterious and esoteric practice area, populated by a relatively small number of insiders all of
whom are intimately familiar with the unique concepts and rules, and all of whom seem to know one another very well. For the
rest of the universe of bankruptcy professionals and judges, the speech is odd and unfamiliar, the special practices truly foreign.
What, after all, is the average bankruptcy judge to make of notions like recognition, hotchpot, and protocol in the bankruptcy
context?
The issue of the course is study how the international crisis of a company established in different countries must be faced,
knowing there are diverse jurisdictions. The UNCITRAL model law, chapter 15 of United States Commercial Code and Regulation
nº 848/15 of EU will be analyzed to understand how the companies could be restructured or liquidated by more than one
jurisdiction (country).

‑ one mandatory introductory class of 4 hours on September 21st where formation of groups and the allocation of preferences
