On 12 January 2017 the Commercial Law Centre and the National University of Singapore’s Centre for Law and Business jointly hosted a group of senior practitioners, scholars and judges at Harris Manchester College for a conference considering the Scheme of Arrangement as a debt restructuring tool. The conference considered not only the English Scheme of Arrangement, but also drew practical and comparative insights from equivalent procedures available in Singapore, India, Germany and Spain, and under the US Bankruptcy Code. The conference was the first joint project arising out of a new collaboration between the Commercial Law Centre and the Centre for Law and Business, and was organised by Professor Louise Gullifer (Oxford) and Professor Tan Cheng Han (NUS). Speakers at the conference included Professor Jennifer Payne, Professor Horst Eidenmueller, Visiting Professor Gabriel Moss QC, and Associate Professor Kristin van Zwieten.
