The conference also has an attractive new paper slot for younger academics in the field. Here are the details:

"The extended programme this year demonstrates the commitment of the ILA Council to foster closer links between its academic members and their colleagues in private practice, and to that end full-time academic Forum attendees are also offered discounted rates to attend the ILA Annual Conference in Cambridge the following day on 2 March 2013.

Younger academics are especially welcome to the Forum, and one slot in the Forum programme is reserved for a paper from one of them.  That paper will be chosen by way of an ILA competition.  Abstracts of no more than 500 words should be submitted to Professor Sarah Worthington (the Chair of the 2013 Forum), University of Cambridge, at sew1003@cam.ac.uk  together with a short CV (maximum 2 pages), by 5pm on Monday 7th January 2013.  The winning paper will be selected for a 30 minute presentation at the Forum and a decision will be made by 18 January 2012. Papers and any accompanying slides will be expected to be delivered no later than 22 February 2013.  Papers may be on any subject relating to insolvency law (domestic, comparative, international, corporate or personal), but the paper should not have been previously published nor accepted for publication as at the date of submission of the abstract.

Please feel free to forward this email to any academics you think may be interested in attending the 2013 Academic Forum, submitting an abstract for the competition, or simply applying to become an academic member of the ILA.

To attend the 2013 Academic Forum, please complete and return the booking form  to Nicola Garrett, CMS Cameron McKenna LLP at Nicola.Garrett@cms-cmck.com (please do not reply to this email). Attendance is free, and for full time academic, reasonable UK travel costs will also be reimbursed by the ILA.

We very much look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in Cambridge next year.

Yours sincerely

Stephen Davies Q.C
On behalf of the ILA Council"
