International Bankruptcy Course

Tuesday, January 17, 2023


As you may know, for many years, the College has sponsored a semester-long class on international bankruptcy. The class is offered annually during the spring semester at many law schools. The lecturers include some of the leading international insolvency academics, practitioners and judges in the world, many of whom are College Fellows.


For the 2023 semester, the College is pleased to announce that it is offering all Fellows and their firms the opportunity to audit the course, with a deep discount for firms who sponsor the College through the Patrons and Sponsors program. The classes are presented live (via Zoom) on 13 consecutive Tuesday nights starting January 17, 2023, from 6:40 pm ET to 8:20 pm ET. For those who are unable to attend live, recordings of each session are posted within 48 hours of the class. 


The course is divided into three modules. The first module, which is presented over four sessions, provides an in-depth review of Chapter 15. The second module focuses on the EU Regulation. The third module focuses on the insolvency laws of a number of foreign countries, including Canada, Mexico, England & Wales, EU countries, China and Japan.


New for 2023, the College will be offering CLE-CPE credit for each session. Participants must agree to participate in online polling and surveys in order to receive credit. Click here for the state-by-state listing of CLE approvals.


The cost for a firm to provide this opportunity to its lawyers or professionals, regardless of how many persons audit and how many classes they attend, is as follows:

  • Sustaining Patrons and Patrons – No charge
  • Sponsors and Supporters - $250
  • Other firms with fewer than 25 professionals - $500
  • Other firms with 25 or more professionals - $750
  • International Fellows (and their firms) - No charge
