It has been announced that Professor Rebecca Parry is to deliver her inaugural lecture at Nottingham Law School, Nottingham Trent University, on the 22nd April 2009. Professor Parry is the author of a number of leading works including: Corporate Rescue (Sweet and Maxwell, 2008) and Transaction Avoidance in Insolvencies (OUP, 2001).
