Schaw Miller and Bailey: Personal Insolvency - Law and Practice offers a full treatment of the law and procedure of bankruptcy and personal insolvency.

This edition takes full account of legislative changes as well as developments in the case law and has been substantially re-arranged to provide a more systematic approach. Commentary on the effect of bankruptcy on other areas of the law is included.
