Portrait of Dr. Virginia Torrie beside her new book Reinventing Bankruptcy law

Faculty of Law

Law professor’s accessible first book earns global attention, local award nomination

May 27, 2021 — 
A year ago, Dr. Virginia Torrie published her first book, Reinventing Bankruptcy Law: A History of the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (University of Toronto Press, 2020). Given that it is about her favourite subjects – bankruptcy and history, and given her proven track record of being an excellent teacher (having won the 2017 Barney Sneiderman Award) it is not too surprising that it was short-listed for the 2021 Manitoba Book Awards’ Alexander Kennedy Isbister Award for Non-Fiction.
