Kayode Olude


The Richard Turton* Award Panel is pleased to announce that the 2022 winner is Kayode Olude from Nigeria.

Kayode is currently studying for a Master of Laws in International Commercial Law at University of Nottingham, his thesis expounding on the prospects of ratification of UNCITRAL Model Laws on cross-border insolvency in Africa’s largest economy – Nigeria, seeking to draw lessons from the experience of other jurisdictions that have adopted the model laws.

Kayode will be writing a paper “Quest for EU harmonisation of cross-border insolvency rules between EU and Non-EU countries; challenges and prospects”, which will be published in summary in one or more of the Member Associations' journals and in full on their websites.

The panel adjudicating this year’s applications was made up of:

Neil Cooper, INSOL International

Nicky Fisher, R3

Maurice Moses, IPA

Robert van Galen, INSOL Europe

We would like to congratulate Kayode on his excellent application, and also thank all the candidates who applied for the award this year and wish them a successful career in their chosen field.

The full details of the Turton Award and papers of the previous winners can be found here.

As part of the award, Mr Olude is invited to attend the INSOL Europe conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia in October.
