TRU alum takes third in law essay competition – TRU Newsroom

October 20, 2021 at 10:18 am  Education, Kamloops, News

TRU Law alum Candace Formosa placed third for the essay she submitted while still a student to the annual Insolvency Institute of Canada Law Student Writing Award program.

Formosa won the $2,500 third-place prize for her paper titled Dampening the Effect of Redwater through a Reverse Vesting Order. She has graduated from TRU and is an articling student for the major firm, Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP.

The program is sponsored by Richard Butler, who began teaching at TRU Law in 2014. A renowned bankruptcy lawyer, he encouraged students to write papers on topical aspects in insolvency law, then evaluated these papers and encouraged students to present their work to law journals.

Butler established the insolvency essay program to foster an interest in insolvency law among students across Canada. It encourages undergraduate students to research current insolvency issues and bring their proposals and ideas to the attention of the business and legal community.

Formosa is particularly grateful to Tom Cumming for providing her with invaluable knowledge and insight on her essay.

The Insolvency Institute of Canada awards monetary prizes to the top three papers in the annual competition. The 2021 winner of the $7,500 first-place prize was Maria Belykh from Western University for her paper on CCAA Supplier Protection: A System in Need of Reform. Kristen Robertson from Queen’s University came second, winning $5,000 for her paper, It’s all the Effect: The Anti-Deprivation Rule Post-Chandos Construction.
