Insolvent Estates 8ed
The Law of Insolvency concerns itself primarily with the financial state of affairs of debtors. It has its origins in Roman Law, Roman-Dutch Law, and English Law and is now regulated primarily by the Insolvency Act 24 of 1936. However, the word insolvency has its origins in the Latin word insolutus, meaning literally an inability to pay.
