Abstract

As is the case in several other jurisdictions, policymakers in the United Kingdom are seeking to adjust the bankruptcy laws to reflect ever increasing usage of the bankruptcy system by consumer debtors. This paper sketches the existing and emerging consumer bankruptcy systems in Scotland, England and Wales and seeks to assess the fitness for purpose of those systems.

Keywords: bankruptcy, consumer debt
