Gates' Concise Zambian Corporate Insolvency Law: Core Facts Core Cases (Paperback)
The Core Facts, Core Cases series is meant to complement full-length texts on different subjects of the law in Zambia. Written in a concise style, it is a useful and thorough support accessible to students, and practitioners alike. Books in the series are written with the clear goal of providing a rich and epigrammatic view of the subject. To help in achieving this goal, all chapters begin with a general summary of the facts and themes covered in the chapter. The foregoing is then followed by a presentational structure that eases the learning process complete with supporting cases and facts thereof where relevant. Corporate Insolvency law is a detailed and complex subject that encompasses the common law, statutory law, and various regulations. This alone makes it a daunting proposition not just for first-time readers but seasoned practitioners too. Be that as it may, it is a core module at undergraduate level, bar courses, and postgraduate law programmes. It is also a relevant module on most if not all business and professional programmes. The key aim of this text is as a revision aid. It must be, and is intended to be used in conjunction with other, more substantive works like Gates Company Law and Practice in Zambia and Gates on Understanding Company Law: A Conceptual and Functional Approach (from which much of the text is derived) for a more profound grasp of the concepts summarised in this text. The Companies Act No 10 of 2017, like the Corporate Insolvency Act No 9 of 2017 received presidential assent on 20 November 2017. This text, it is hoped, will be a useful resource for purposes of revising company law and corporate insolvency law in Zambia within the context of the Companies Act, 2017 and the Corporate Insolvency Law, 2017. The structure of the text is to a large extent premised on the two Acts. The text also continues the practice of highlighting Zambian cases where these are available. Where the law as set out in the CA 2017 or CIA 2017 is clear, no additions or subtractions are made. Additionally, the text encourages readers to do further research not only on the many cases that are cited but not quoted but from other works that have been published on the topics covered.
