Annual Review of Insolvency Law

The Annual Review of Insolvency Law is the only refereed journal in Canada that is dedicated to insolvency law, with articles contributed by scholars, accounting and legal practitioners and members of the judiciary. Housed at UBC Faculty of Law, it is dedicated primarily to developments in Canadian personal and commercial insolvency, although it contains some comparative analysis as well. This conference marks the launch of the second volume of the Review.
