RFMLR - IBBI CONFERENCE AND BLOG SERIES COMPETITION ON EVOLVING DYNAMICS OF THE INSOLVENCY REGIME IN INDIA

Copy of RGNUL FINANCIAL AND MERCANTILE LAW REVIEW jointly with INSOLVENCY AND BANKRUPTCY B

The Code is one of the most dynamic statutes enacted in the past decade. Its implementation has unfolded numerous novel perspectives to the legal framework making it highly relevant to all stakeholders. Judgments and amendments have time and again sought to address 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.
