Annual Review of Insolvency Law is a collection of papers on insolvency issues contributed by practitioners, academics and the judiciary

The Annual Review of Insolvency Law 2013 offers a collection of articles from today's experts, both academic and practising. Authors weigh in on the most vital debates, theorize on future implications of current rules and trends, and scrutinize the practical implications of recent proceedings and challenges.

New in this edition
This year's edition features a collection of 27 articles offering a comprehensive analysis of current developments in insolvency law in Canada. The articles reflect on recent judgments on important and timely topics and on cutting-edge cases that impact the overall framework of insolvency and bankruptcy law. Topics include conflicting policy objectives, the continuing tension between federal insolvency law and pension and other provincial remedial legislation, new challenges in respect of cross-border proceedings, and the treatment of corporate groups. Another article undertakes an examination of recent municipal bankruptcies in the United States and their likelihood of occurring in Canada.
The volume also includes forward-looking perspectives on the upcoming legislative reform process, expected in 2014, including the scope of liquidation that should be permissible, the definition of debtor under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA), the benefits and limits of credit bidding, and the challenge for professionals and stakeholders in respect of the scope and costs of insolvency professionals.
