As the Insolvency Law Journal celebrates its 25th year, we mark some recent changes in the leadership of the journal. Dr Colin Anderson stepped down as General Editor of the journal at the beginning of 2017 after more than 10 years at its helm. In his place, we welcome the new co-General Editors Professor Rosalind Mason and Dr David Morrison, whose connections to the journal go back several years.
