As it is known, the court is the body that administers justice. Georgia has a system of general courts, including District, Appeal, and Cassation courts. The district court is a court of first instance covering the entire territory of Georgia. Considering the specificity of insolvency, its cases are considered only by the city courts of Tbilisi and Kutaisi. The powers assigned to the insolvency court include reviewing the application, opening the rehabilitation regime, appointing a manager/supervisor, etc. The activity of a judge often goes beyond the scope of civil law and Civil Procedure Code. Accordingly, the rights and obligations established by other branches of law apply to him/her. One is the law of insolvency, which mainly has independent general and procedural norms. The current law envisages the court’s involvement in such a regime as rehabilitation. In the work, the role of the court is considered within the framework of the regulation of the law of insolvency, the rehabilitation regime, which is regulated by the law of insolvency. And the research revealed that certain issues need to be regulated at the legislative level. Due to the fact that the role and rights, and duties of the court in the rehabilitation regime have not been elaborated in accordance with the new law by the researchers, the research topic is relevant and interesting. To properly discuss the topic provided by the article, the law “On Rehabilitation and Collective Satisfaction of Creditors’ Claims”, insolvency proceedings, and bankruptcy proceedings are compared. The normative acts in force in Georgia are used in the work, which regulates the rights and duties of the judge. In addition, various international acts are cited in the article for comparison and strengthening of the position.
