Research Associates

CERIL is an independent non-profit, non-partisan, self-supporting organisation. Its members are committed to the improvement of restructuring and insolvency laws and practices in Europe, the European Union and in its Member States. In this work, CERIL aims to involve younger academic talent and welcomes applications of interest for the CERIL Research Associateship.

A Research Associate will work alongside the Conferees, the approximately 75 lawyers and other restructuring and insolvency practitioners, law professors and (insolvency) judges. The Conferees organise their activities in various Working Parties, that are focused on a specific topic. A Research Associate will be appointed to a Working Party on either an ongoing project, or a new project.

All CERIL projects are, in particular, geared toward advising the European Union institutions as well as its Member States, European countries and other interested institutions. This may regard technical and policy issues relating to restructuring and insolvency laws, regulation and practice and any related laws. The project results are, once adopted, endorsed as a CERIL Statement and/or Report. CERIL promotes the engagement of Research Associates in these activities.
