1st Conference of Doctoral Students of social sciences in the field of bankruptcy, restructuring law and insolvency research 


"Bankruptcy and restructuring proceedings from the legal and economic perspective"

Conference objectives

The conference is the first, interacademic event organised entirely by doctoral students and dedicated to them.

We invite doctoral students who conduct their research in the field of social and economic sciences concerning issues of bankruptcy, insolvency and restructuring of entities and natural persons who do not conduct economic activity, to participate in the conference. The conference is to enable young scholars to present the results of their research and exchange ideas pertaining to restructuring proceedings, insolvency and bankruptcy, not only from the point of view of law but also with aspects of economic analysis of legal processes, sociology and the axiology of law. Insolvency, which very often entails poverty, constitutes an important social phenomenon and, as such, is crucial in terms of social and economic development processes in a society. We do hope that the conference will motivate doctoral students to instigate and continue multifaceted research of that phenomenon.
