The Michael Macnaughton Student Writing Award for Insolvency Law was created to encourage law students who are CBA/OBA Members who are pursuing a J.D. degree at an Ontario law school or registered as a student-at-law member of the Law Society of Upper Canada to prepare a written submission, having regard to the criteria set out here, on a recent case or a topical issue of interest to insolvency practitioners. The late Michael MacNaughton was one of the leading insolvency lawyers in Canada and was well known for his consistent contributions to the body of literature in the area of insolvency and restructuring.
This year’s winners were presented with the Award at the CLUC Annual Retreat and Cocktail Reception on June 3, 2015. Congratulations. Their winning submission can be found here..
