Scientific conference: Challenging a debtor’s legal act carried out in a way that wrongs creditors
On 30 November 2018, the team of the Restructuring and Insolvency Department participated in a scientific conference on appealing against a debtor’s legal act performed with creditors’ compensation, which took place at the Lazarski University in Warsaw. The conference was organized by the Institute of Bankruptcy and Restructuring Law and Insolvency Research of Lazarski University in Warsaw and Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań.
The conference brought together many representatives of science and law practice. The speakers were the most eminent specialists. In the order of speeches they were:
- Bartosz Sierakowski, MA, who discussed national jurisdiction in cases related to the Pauline complaint in the light of the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union,
- Prof. Wojciech Popiołek, who presented the issues of applicable law in cases from the Pauline complaint,
- Prof. Piotr Machnikowski, who discussed the essence and effects of the ineffectiveness of a debtor’s legal act done to the detriment of creditors,

Moreover, during the conference there was a poster session and a speech by young scientists.
The whole event should be regarded as very successful. The participants took part in the discussion. It turned out that there are many legal issues that still require in-depth studies and analyses.
The organizers invited to the next events of the cycle, which is to take place in June 2019.
