The principles of the law of mortgages and other securities.
Secured lending is an integral part of the commercial world, whether to consumers or to business entities. This paper examines the creation, perfection and enforcement of security interests in personal property and the interface between secured advances and bankruptcy, insolvency and receivership law. It is also concerned with the relative priorities of secured creditors with competing claims to collateral and its proceeds, including the potential for conflicts of law to arise in international transactions. Finally, there is an analysis of the rights of consumer borrowers under both the Personal Property Securities Act and the Consumer Finance and Credit Contracts Act.
