Insol International Online Training

Foundation Certificate in International Insolvency Law

Insol International's Foundation Certificate is a postgraduate certificate programme aimed at inexperienced or new entrants to the insolvency profession, especially in emerging market and developing jurisdictions.

Globalisation has fundamentally altered insolvency practice around the world, creating new challenges for lawyers, accountants and turnaround professionals. This trend towards globalisation is complemented by the development and enactment of new legislative instruments, such as the European Insolvency Regulation and the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency, the latter of which has been adopted in a number of jurisdictions around the world.

With firms and individuals becoming increasingly aware of the importance of preparing for the future, the Foundation Certificate is well placed to prepare inexperienced practitioners or new entrants to the field of insolvency by providing them with a sound theoretical and practical knowledge of the basics of international insolvency law..

Registered candidates are required to complete eight modules in order to obtain the certificate, three of which are compulsory modules and five of which are elective modules. For the elective modules candidates can choose from 25 jurisdictions in five regions across the globe. The prescribed materials for each of the modules have been prepared by experts in practice and academia, reflecting a wide pool of specialised expertise.


INSOL aims to provide an affordable, easily accessible course for working practitioners that can be completed at a realistic pace. The course is presented entirely online and does not require candidates to travel.

Candidates will be allowed a period of two (2) years within which to complete the course, but may do so within one year provided they pass all the relevant modules for the Foundation Certificate in the relevant year.
