The fact that persons and companies will, in a market economy, become insolvent is inevitable. The past decade has demonstrated the need for advisers and those involved generally in commerce to be aware of the issues which confront insolvents and what alternatives can be pursued. To be able to do this requires an understanding of the law as it applies to both personal and corporate insolvency.

The course will provide a comprehensive coverage of the law of insolvency and restructuring as it affects both individuals and corporations. The course examines the major types of insolvency administration provided for by the law, for both individuals and corporations - bankruptcy, Part X arrangements, receivership, voluntary administrations and liquidations. Some emphasis is placed on the process of bankruptcy and liquidation and a major part of the course is a consideration of the provisions dealing with company rescue.
