About CIFL

The Centre for Insolvency and Financial Laws (CIFL) at MNLU Mumbai aims to act as a think-tank in furtherance of the principal objective of raising awareness about financial laws in theory and practice, as well as conducting high-quality research in the field to assist policymakers.

The Centre is premised on the objective of establishing a culture of financial laws by educating the next generation of lawyers and law students through seminars, conferences, workshops and symposiums. The Centre will conduct national and international insolvency and financial law policy and regulatory studies. The Centre aims to advise and analyze current policy approaches to financial law, as well as advocate for financial law reform and policy implementation.

The Centre, because of its unique role, focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to identifying insolvency and financial law problems and will engage in research, dialogue, and negotiation to facilitate systemic changes in the field. The Centre will undertake a variety of activities and endeavors ranging from research projects on the insolvency and bankruptcy laws, such as a study on the lacunae in said laws, seminars involving reputed individuals from the field, conferences, publishing an annual journal, etc.

What we do

One of the reasons behind the establishment of CIFL is to expand the insolvency law knowledge base and, consequently, research capabilities in the field. CIFL will aim to achieve these objectives through a two pronged strategy. One, it disseminates information on insolvency and bankruptcy laws to create awareness.

Two, CIFL aims to advise and analyze the current policy approaches to insolvency and financial laws, as well as advocate for insolvency and financial law reforms and policy implementation. The Centre focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to identify any lacunas and shortcomings present in the current conception of insolvency and financial laws. CIFL also engages in research and dialogue to facilitate systemic changes in the field.

Our Vision

Our vision is to become one of the leading platforms for insolvency and financial laws research and also provide an international and comparative perspective about insolvency and financial laws.
