Course contents

The Course aims to deepen some specific aspects of the Italian legislation on insolvency procedures, focusing on some particular issues in the field of:

- judicial liquidation, in particular revocation actions;

- actions for liability of the administrator;

- hidden entrepreneur and judicial liquidation of the hidden partner;

- composition with creditors, in particular the abuse of the composition with creditors;

- debt restructuring agreements and their legal nature;

- problems of the crisis of corporate groups;

- over-indebtedness and minor composition with creditors;

- administrative compulsory liquidation and bank resolution;

During the lecture, the study and discussion of the above topics will be based on the analysis of cases from professional and jurisprudential practice.

Particular attention will be paid to the reform of the business crisis and insolvency disciplines through the analysis of the recently approved Business Crisis Code.

The course aims to provide students with an in-depth knowledge of bankruptcy law and business crisis, which goes beyond the classical notions of institutional courses. Attendance at the course is particularly recommended for all students who intend to devote themselves to the profession of chartered accountant and auditor, as well as expert consultant in the drafting and management of corporate recovery plans.
