Why should you buy Schaw Miller and Bailey: Personal Insolvency - Law and Practice Sixth edition

"The arrival of the Sixth Edition of Schaw, Miller and Bailey is... most welcome. As with the earlier editions, it brings a clear and comprehensive analysis of the relevant statutory framework and case law in a readily accessible format. It will be an invaluable reference and guide to all lawyers and insolvency practitioners seeking to navigate this increasingly important area of law and practice": Lord Justice Snowden, May 2022

This edition offers a full treatment of the law and procedure of bankruptcy and personal insolvency. This popular title offers authoritative and practical guidance on everything lawyers or insolvency practitioners practising in the field are likely to need in their day-to-day work.

The sixth edition has been fully updated to cover recent developments and case law, including the relevant changes brought about by Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic.

What's new:

  • Coverage of the changes caused by Brexit, the subject of a whole chapter, and the most extensive alterations in the new edition.
