Description

This subject aims to provide students with a detailed and practical understanding of the various insolvency and restructuring options that are available to companies in financial distress. The discussion of corporate insolvency laws is placed within the broader commercial and social context of business failure, including the impact of insolvency on secured and unsecured creditors, employees and tort victims. In particular, this subject discusses the range of formal and informal debt restructuring techniques that may be used to assist a company in financial distress. Where relevant, the subject materials provide a comparison between Australia's corporate insolvency and restructuring laws and corresponding laws in Europe, North America and Asia.
