The fourth edition of Debtor-Creditor Law and Procedure, by Laurence Olivo and DeeAnn Gonsalves, is designed to help students in law clerk and paralegal programs understand the law, procedure, and practice in this area. With clear discussions and examples throughout, this accessible, student-friendly text explains practical concepts of debtor-creditor law and how recent changes to legislation have enhanced the scope of practice for licensed paralegals.

The fourth edition has been updated to include changes to Superior Court of Justice rules following the Osborne report; more extensive references to the Paralegal Rules of Conduct; updates in the area of construction liens and changes in bankruptcy and consumer proposals; and significant revisions to the chapters on Small Claims Court proceedings, including discussions on the increase in monetary limits for claims and updated forms and procedures.

In response to reader feedback, the chapters on file organization and searches as well as lawsuits and calculations have been restructured and are now presented in smaller chapters, making these topics less overwhelming and more manageable for students.

Furthermore, as a result of economic changes over the past few years and the increase in the number of personal and business debtors in Canada, the authors have added a new chapter on remedies for debtors and information on credit counselling.
