It is clearly structured into four main parts: Institutions; Voluntary arrangements and compositions outside bankruptcy; Bankruptcy; Administration orders and other debt management arrangements Excerpt from the Foreword to the 5th Edition by Stephen Baister, former Chief Bankruptcy Registrar:

“Even since the coming into force of the Insolvency Act 1986 bankruptcy has continued to undergo change…Schaw Miller and Bailey: Personal Insolvency has been there to guide the practitioner through the changes. Now its fifth edition will steer a course through the latest reform, the replacement of the Insolvency Rules 1986, after 28 amendments, by the Insolvency (England and Wales) Rules 2016. To the busy lawyer change is never as good as a rest, but a good textbook can ease the passing from one legal era to another. Schaw Miller and Bailey is just such a work.”
