In today's society, information and communication technologies are a fundamental tool supporting all citizens. Those technologies come to be essential for people´s communication. However, the continuous technological innovation in which today's daily life is mired has not been conveyed to the judiciary in the same degree as the latter tends to usually be more conservative and reluctant to change.
To reverse this trend, the State has produced laws and regulations in recent years in order to try and implement the technological development necessary to shape the traditional facilities and tools of the judiciary in accordance with 21st Century´s Society.
In this technological update, since its first drafting, Law 22/2003, of the ninth of July, on Bankruptcy, has incorporated remarkable changes whose common denominator is the use of new technologies.
These and other issues related to the use of technology as far as the current regulation of bankrupcy provides for are the subject matter of what is exposed here.
