AbstractAlthough it is a fundamental principle of insolvency law that all creditors are treated equally (the par! passu principle), in practice this principle is subject to a number of important exceptions. The principal exceptions are the respective rights of secured creditors, preferential creditors, landlords and execution creditors. The body of work contains a number of peer refereed articles in all these areas, in relation to both corporate and individual insolvency. In additional to an historical approach and a doctrinal approach, certain parts of the body of work also contain theoretical discussions and some empirical research. A number of the articles being submitted have been the subject of many citations by learned authors in the area. In addition one article has been cited by the New Zealand High Court and the New Zealand Law Commission has quoted from another article. The body of work is original in that it contains new ideas or views matters with a new approach.
