Ross Parsons Centre Law & Business seminar: Exploring the impact of bankruptcy and other consumer debt options

Ross Parsons Centre Law & Business seminar: Exploring the impact of bankruptcy and other consumer debt options

Speaker: Nicola Howell, Faculty of Law, Queensland University of Technology

In this webinar, Nicola will present some initial results from her empirical study on the impact on debtors of different ‘treatment’ options for over-indebtedness, including bankruptcy, debt agreements and financial difficulty assistance. Among other things, Nicola’s study explores whether these options lead to improvements in the financial wellbeing of debtors, and meet their intended policy goals. These issues are explored through surveys and interviews of debtors, and surveys of financial counsellors and insolvency practitioners.
