Growing a unique legal collection on insolvency law

A main objectives of BWILC is to make available a collection of legal sources on restructuring and insolvency law. This is achieved in particular with the book collection available in the library of the Leiden Law School (the Netherlands). A collection that is consulted by legal students, researchers as well as lawyers.

The collection is the result of the the many donations that we receive from academics and practitioners. We are very grateful for all contribuants that support this international insolvency law collection. We kindly invite you to donate your books on restructuring and insolvency law to BWILC. A donation can be made by sending your book to:
