Bolanle’s research is on Corporate Insolvency Law. Currently she focuses on international corporate rescue models. Bolanle takes a theoretical and comparative approach to her research. Her project examines the fundamental elements of corporate rescue and analyses rescue models in light of these. Bolanle also explores insolvency and corporate rescue systems in Africa. The African research largely infuses empirical research methods with the theoretical approach.
