Synopsis: The course will include a general coverage of all topics within the broad framework of insolvency law as it applies to corporations (including rescue procedures and receivership), together with the examination in greater depth of selected topics. Emphasis will be placed on fundamental principles rather than details of the legislation, but without losing sight of the fact that this is a subject of treat practical importance. There will be opportunities for comparative study (eg with the US Chapter 11 proceedings), and an examination of the problems raised in cross-boarder insolvencies.
