Professor Irit Mevorach delivers paper at the University of Michigan Law School

Irit Mevorach presented a paper entitled 'A Fresh View on the Hard/Soft Law Divide - Implications for International Insolvency of Enterprise Groups' at Michigan University Law School, conference on 'The Role of "Soft Law" in International Insolvency and Commercial Law' on 21-22 September 2018.

She discussed how a non-orthodox, holistic, approach to what is hard or soft law assists in assessing the merits and shortcomings of instrument choice and design in the field of international insolvency. She argued that such assessment reveals that the new so-called soft law instrument developed by UNCITRAL for enterprise groups is in important ways (going to be) harder than the one introduced in the EU (hard law) instrument.
