Insolvency Law: Commentary and Materials fills an important gap in student learning: exposure to the critical cases and materials that shape personal and corporate insolvency law. This book has been released at a time when significant questions are being asked in the insolvency world. What should be the ongoing role of the corporate regulator, ASIC? Should personal and corporate insolvency be managed through an amalgamation of ASIC with its bankruptcy equivalent, AFSA? What is the role of the liquidator as the gatekeeper of corporate conduct? Should Australia adopt Chapter 11 bankruptcy from the United States? Insolvency Law: Commentary and Materials provides a foundational understanding of these issues. Jason Harris is a senior lecturer in the UTS Faculty of Law and teaches and writes extensively in the area of insolvency, in particular in corporate restructuring. Michael Gronow of the Victorian Bar has both litigation and publication experience in insolvency law, and has for some years taught Insolvency Law to LLB and now JD students at the Melbourne Law School. Associate Professor Helen Anderson of the Melbourne Law School has taught Corporations Law for many years, and has researched and published widely in the area of creditor protection, including most recently, the position of employee creditors.
