The Centre, based in Lincoln’s Inn Fields, is one of the world’s top commercial post-graduate law schools, attracting more than 700 students annually. Simon is contributing to the Corporate Insolvency Law course.
Invitations for guest lectureships are both prestigious and sought after. Simon brings a clear research interest - exemplified in eight articles he had published last year - as well as his experience as a practitioner.
“I particularly enjoyed listening to practitioners’ lectures when I was studying and it was something that I wanted to do. I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to share my energy and enthusiasm for the subject,” he explained.
His first lecture in January was on set off and netting. “It’s a very technical topic and not something that had been covered in the course until this year,” he said. “It has applications for insolvency law and corporate finance, so was of interest to a broad range of students.”
The first lecture was very well received and will be followed with two further lectures from Simon later in the year.
