Background to this presentation
Insolvency law is essentially a body of law comprising procedures for collective debt collection mechanisms. Due to its unique nature, often the teaching methods adopted concentrate of the substantive requirements for the remedies and pay less or no attention on the procedural aspects necessary to access the remedies. As with any court application, both substantive and procedural requirements for relief are important. The webinar will deal with both in a balanced manner for a well-rounded understanding of the litigation aspects of insolvency law
