So, how exactly would a bankrupt have funded such proceedings 10, 20, 30 or even 40 years ago?

My suspicion is that in fact LiPs can be better prepared now than they ever could be in the past. The CPR and all statutes are now available online as is a plethora of sites offering free advice or support.

Imagine bringing a claim pre-CPR. Issue then get to a trial when you have no idea about anything. No internet to help, no ideas about evidence or burden of proof and so on.

Of course it is difficult but that is not the intention of the system. If you want to do it yourself you can. Just be very very careful is all.

Do a web search for 'claim under section 304 of the Insolvency Act 1986' and see what you find.
