Gulfport, Fla. - Stetson University College of Law will present its fourth International Bankruptcy Symposium June 15-18 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The event is chaired by Chief Judge Emeritus Alexander L. Paskay of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Tampa, Fla., who also serves as a Stetson adjunct professor.

The conference is designed for U.S. judges and attorneys to meet with their Canadian counterparts to discuss a variety of topics of international interest, including an overview of the Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency as adopted by Uncitral, current Chapter 11 issues with international implications and current developments in international insolvencies and reorganizations.

In previous years, the symposium has taken place in Varenna, Italy, and Budapest, Hungary. These programs have provided an opportunity for combining education, collegiality and entertainment with peers, friends and family in an international setting.

A number of Canadian and American bankruptcy judges and attorneys from Montreal, Toronto, Washington, D.C., and Florida will speak during the symposium. All are regarded as experts in their various insolvency/bankruptcy practices and have contributed to numerous publications and seminars.

In addition to the International Bankruptcy Symposium, Stetson has presented an annual U.S. bankruptcy seminar in Tampa Bay for the past 28 years. Past attendees and national leaders in bankruptcy law have characterized the Stetson conference as the premier conference on bankruptcy in the nation.
