Insolvency law has faced quite a shake-up in recent years and continues to do so as we are now getting to grips with a whole new set of insolvency rules. This certificate course is primarily aimed at practitioners in other fields who come across insolvent situations in their practice and wish to develop their knowledge and experience.
It is tailored specifically for non-contentious lawyers. There is a complementary Certificate in Insolvency Litigation and the two courses can be attended together for a complete overview of insolvency law and practice.
At the end of the course, you will be in a position to advise your clients on the law and practice and also be in a position to maximise recoveries and look at alternative methods of enforcement. It will be very topical, include case study work and reflect the fast pace changes that are taking place in this area of law.
Topics covered include:
• An introduction to the different insolvency regimes (personal and corporate)
• Administration law generally to include an up to date analysis of law and practice around pre-pack administrations
• Property law and insolvency
• Employment law and insolvency
• Piercing the corporate veil; getting at the directors personally
• Creditors' rights under the different insolvency regimes
• Getting the most out of the insolvency practitioner – his role and duties, and what happens if you are dissatisfied?
• Funding insolvency litigation; the changing landscape
