1.12.3.Course objectives

1. General Objectives

The course aims to:

-Understand and discuss the rationality of business restructuring within the framework of Insolvency law.

-Build on students' skills by developing abilities in legal reasoning, research, legal writing and critical analysis of complex legal texts.

-Produce independent learners who have the ability to access and manipulate legal resources and who can plan and manage their workload effectively.

-Develop students' abilities to communicate complex legal concepts that apply within the areas of business reorganizations and insolvency law.

2. Specific Objectives

This course reflects the rapid growth in the development of business restructuring practice in the European Union and, even, globally. Thus, the course will consider the most important aspects of business restructuring, assessing international influences that affect this area of law, as well as its impact in other fields of law (i.e., corporate law).

This course focuses on the study of the different responses to financial distress, ranging from formal legal instruments (insolvency proceedings) to informal ones (restructuring arrangements). A particular attention will be paid to the Directive (EU) 2019/1023, on preventive restructuring frameworks, second chance and measures to increase the efficiency of restructuring, insolvency and discharge procedures.

This Course will help students to acquire a significant level of knowledge and to develop a critical insight into this field.
