    About the Discussion
    International and multilateral organizations have spearheaded efforts to modernize and harmonize the law of bankruptcy and secured credit. These projects, often sponsored by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), have for the most part presented as international standards rules that are generally consistent with U.S. (and sometimes UK) law and practice. The program will describe and discuss current UNCITRAL projects, including:

    •    Model Secured Transactions Law, providing legislative language to effectuate the recommendations of UNCITRAL’s Legislative Guide on Secured Transactions;
    •    The development of a template for coordinating the bankruptcy administration and governance of cross-border corporate groups, including so-called synthetic measures; and
    •    Harmonization of the law governing the obligations of officers and directors in corporate groups, as well as the enforcement of insolvency-related judgments and orders.

    Emphasis will be placed on why thoughtful practitioners should be following these projects now.

    Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Business Law and Regulation and the American Bankruptcy Institute
