The workshop will discuss different models for 1) structuring the courts that oversee insolvency proceedings, 2) determining the roles of creditors and debtors in the insolvency process, for 3) selecting trustees and 4) determining the role of the court in the insolvency proceeding versus the role of the trustee. The study tour will be led by a US Federal Judge from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the Southern District of New York, a specialized federal court that reviews some of the most complex bankruptcy proceedings in the country, bankruptcy lawyers from the US, the UK, Singapore and Dubai. The workshop will also provide an opportunity to highlight the provisions of regional insolvency laws and the anticipated changes that will be made to the judiciaries in those countries.
