INSOL Scholars Specifications 2011-2012 - deadline 10th August 2011

IINSOL have published a reminder of the details for the upcoming INSOL scholars scheme. The INSOL Scholars project contemplates three one-year fellowships for the regions of Europe, Africa and the Middle East, The Americas and the Pan Pacific Rim.  The Scholarships run from September 2011 - August 2012.

The INSOL Scholars will be responsible for issuing quarterly reports on current legislative and case law developments relevant to international insolvency in chosen jurisdictions in their respective region.  The INSOL Scholars will also work closely with INSOL's Technical Manager to formulate new studies and projects, including long-term studies in conjunction with organisations, such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law.

The INSOL Scholars will publish and circulate their various reports and studies via either INSOL World, on the INSOL website, via e-mail, through the technical reports series and INSOL will look to have the works published in other journals.  If English is not the first language of the applicant assistance can be given to edit the final text of any papers.

The INSOL Scholar fellowships are part-time.  The stipend will be $12,000 per year and does not include benefits.  The stipend will provide compensation and fund the INSOL Scholars' research and other expenses incurred while providing services to INSOL. In addition, INSOL will waive registration fees for Scholars for all INSOL conferences and seminars during their year of appointment.

The INSOL Scholars will be required to fulfil certain minimum requirements during their fellowship, including:

  •  Generally devote 10-12 hours to INSOL projects a month;
  • Prepare monthly regional case studies and legislation updates for the Scholar Section of INSOL's electronic brief;
  • Prepare specific research as requested
  • Author at least one academic paper for the INSOL Technical Series; and
  • The Scholar may be requested to present regional updates and/or participate as panel members at one INSOL conference.

 Ideally, candidates should have at least two - eight years work experience. Good luck with any applications! Recent UK INSOL scholars include Professor Adrian Walters.
