Reinventing Bankruptcy Law offers the first historical account of the CCAA, drawing on a broad array of historical sources including legislation, news sources, scholarly writing, archival materials, and more.
Virginia Torrie is an assistant professor in the Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba, and serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Banking and Finance Law Review.
Stephen J. Lubben, Harvey Washington Wiley Chair in Corporate Governance & Business Ethics, Seton Hall University School of Law:
"Most sophisticated American restructuring attorneys know that the CCAA is "like" chapter 11, but many of us know little more than that. Professor Torrie’s book explains why and how the CCAA grew to mirror chapter 11, and why this new understanding of the CCAA may have little to do with the actual intent of the drafters back in the 1930s. For any American reader who wants to really understand the CCAA, and its modern-day relation to chapter 11, this is a must read book."
Vern W. DaRe, Fogler, Rubinoff LLP and co-author of Debt Restructuring: Principles and Practice and Honsberger’s Bankruptcy in Canada :
"Real time" litigation under the CCAA does not permit most practitioners to engage in much historical analysis. In a breakthrough book based on detailed research and novel analysis, Dr. Virginia Torrie offers the busy practitioner insight into the history of the CCAA, including the evolution of filling "gaps" and advancing the broader public interest. Reinventing Bankruptcy Law is bound to be persuasive to any court."
Adrian Walters, Ralph L. Brill Professor of Law, Chicago-Kent College of Law, Illinois Institute of Technology:
"With impressive scholarship, Reinventing Bankruptcy Law provides an excellent, accessible short history of the CCAA. Virginia Torrie draws upon political science and socio-legal theory to explore why a piece of federal restructuring legislation, hardly used in its enactment during the Depression, became a staple of restructuring practice in the 1980s and onwards. Torrie’s account is comprehensive, well framed, and well evidenced."
