Formatted abstract This thesis pursues three basic objectives: first to demonstrate the historical development of the Australian Corporations Law insolvent trading prohibition as a function of legal change with reference to societal factors that have resulted in a movement towards increased creditor protection; second to outline the associated legal problems with the drafting of the legislation and the consideration of key terminology and associated provisions; and third to critically assess the operation of the insolvent trading prohibition suggesting insight offered by the Contractualist viewpoint of corporate law theory.

Accordingly, the thesis develops by a consideration of the following parts: first by examining the operation of the insolvent trading prohibition to provide the historical context and to demonstrate the factors resulting in a provision that gives increased creditor protection (Part I); second to examine the scope of the prohibition and its weaknesses within the context of both the wording and the operation of the insolvent trading prohibition (Part II); and third to make a critical evaluation of the prohibition from the Contractualist viewpoint (Part III).
