    The CBL / Business & Liability Research Network hosts its international opening conference on 25 and 26 January 2018 at the University of Leiden (NL). The theme of the Conference is 'Business Resilience'.

    Business resilience has emerged as a response to the decreasing lifespan of businesses and the inability of key stakeholders to adequately address issues of preparedness and responsiveness to incremental change and sudden business disruptions. This international conference on business resilience emphasizes drivers of change and responsiveness to change from three perspectives:

    • Technology as driver of change to the organisation and corporate governance of businesses.
    • Long-term value creation as driver of change in capital markets, corporate governance and businesses.
    • Directors’ duties and liabilities as drivers of change in directors’ willingness to take risks.

    The Academic Forum (20 April) will focus on ‘hot topics’ in corporate insolvency and personal bankruptcy law including the European Commission proposals for harmonisation, reform of the English corporate restructuring and insolvency framework, financial institution resolution, Brexit, and the implications of the rising consumer debt burden.

    The Annual Conference (21 April) will be chaired by the Honourable Lord Justice Newey. The day will begin with a discussion of how certain key issues for restructuring are addressed in Chapter 11. A series of speakers will then focus on these issues from a UK perspective, as we think about where the UK regime may be superior, where it would benefit from reform and the extent to which the US Bankruptcy Code might be used as a model for reform.
