                        Editorial Notice
With the kind permission of the Hong Kong Law Journal we reproduce the notice
recently published in that journal to commemorate the life and achievements of Pro-
fessor Philip Smart, whose contributions to scholarship and learning in the field of
insolvency law will be well known to readers of International Insolvency Review. As a
mark of the high regard in which Philip was held within the global academic com-
munity, the proceedings at the 2008 conference of the INSOL International Aca-
demics Group, which took place in Shanghai on 13-14 September, were dedicated in
his memory.
