Conference – ‘Secured Transactions Law Reform: Priority Rules and the Impact on Consumers’ (6 Jan 2017)

Professor Duncan Sheehan of the University of Leeds Law Faculty will be hosting a conference entitled Secured Transactions Law Reform: Priority Rules and the Impact on Consumers on the 6th of January 2017.

The conference, held in conjunction with the Secured Transactions Law Reform Project, and part-funded by the Society of Legal Scholars, will assess different models of secured transactions law reform, the impact on other areas of law, and specific problematic asset classes such as financial collateral, intellectual property rights and bitcoin.

It will examine the relationship of a reformed law on two areas in particular. The first is the effect of reform on priorities and nemo dat quod non habet. The latter is the rule that a transferor cannot give his transferee any better title to an asset than he has. These issues will be also considered in the context of consumer protection.
