The application of restitution and insolvency law has increased in recent years. Theses two areas of law were discussed at the annual conference of the restitution section of the Society of Public Teachers of Law in Leeds in September 1999. The revised papers are joined here by a variety of papers from other sources and explore a range of topical subjects of common interest to restitution and insolvency from theotrical, comparative and practical perspectives.
