The subject aims to examine insolvency within the social context and impact of insolvency law.

Both individual and corporate insolvency are examined. All aspects of personal and corporate insolvency are studied but the subject places particular emphasis on examining the powers of insolvency administrators, voluntary administration, liquidation and the rights of creditors.
