Insolvency Law for a new century

Japan's revised framework for economic failures

Kent Anderson, Makoto Ito

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Insolvency was not covered in the original volume of Law in Japan: The Legal Order in a Changing Society. According to that book's index, the only reference to debtor-creditor law was a single notation that the Bankruptcy Act was adopted in 1922.1 Perhaps this is not surprising given the focus of the original project on the "development and evolution" of Japanese law. For most of the postwar era, insolvency law2 has not been at the cutting edge of law reform. Indeed, the initial citation to insolvency law in this review is to the same 1922 bankruptcy legislation.
