About this Course

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code has changed the way NPAs are managed in India. IBC consolidates all the laws related to insolvency in India by creating a single law. It helps to ensure confidence of banks, foreign investors, and associated companies in crisis mitigation mechanisms.

As a law practitioner, insolvency practitioner or a creditor, it is essential to learn the procedure for filing an insolvency petition. This course takes the learner through the various aspects of filing petitions under the IBC whether as a financial creditor, operational creditor or as a corporate applicant.

  • You are a recent law graduate or graduating from law school
  • You have a basic understanding of legal practice and procedure
  • You are a creditor/corporate initiating IRP
  • You already know the basics of Insolvency & Bankruptcy Law (If not, you can also watch our course on ‘Insolvency Essentials’)
