SMU Module Review: LAW429 Corporate Insolvency Law

Insolvency law is concerned with debtors who are unable to pay their debts. This course will consider the rules, principles and processes which the law has developed to address this everpresent problem, with a focus on debtors which are companies. In particular it will cover, in more depth than in LAW205, the formal processes available in Singapore – receivership, schemes of arrangement, judicial management and liquidation. In those contexts, the substantive policies and principles of the law will be addressed – e.g., the pari passu principle, the concept of set-off, and the avoidance of suspect transactions entered in the runup to insolvency. In addition, the course will consider informal debt restructurings (workouts), and also introduce the issues and developing law relating to cross-border insolvencies. It is aimed to have some practitioner involvement in aspects of the course, possibly by way of a workshop dealing with a hypothetical insolvency scenario.
