The course involves a detailed study of the law relating to personal securities, as well as associated topics such as credit contracts.
This course will cover two major areas of commercial law. Credits are an important part of our economy and as such frequently used. However, lenders face the risk that the borrower will not or cannot repay their credits. They therefore frequently secure their loans against some or all of the borrower's personal property. This course explores the rules around both credits and personal property securities and how these concepts interact. It also takes a critical view on whether consumers are adequately protected and whether future reform is desirable.
The course will enable you to:- acquire knowledge of selected principles of the law governing consumer credit contracts and security interests in personal property- consider critically issues of principle and policy raised by the present law and its operation and practice, and consequently, whether reform is desirable- further develop skills in legal analysis and reasoning.
