International and Comparative Secured Transactions Law.pdf
The law of secured transactions has seen dramatic changes in the last decade. International organisations, particularly the UNCITRAL, have been working towards the creation of international texts aimed at the modernisation of secured financing laws (eg the UN Convention on the Assignment of Receivables, the UNCITRAL Legislative Guide on Secured Transactions and its Intellectual Property Supplement, the UNCITRAL Guide on the implementation of a Security Rights Registry and the draft UNCITRAL Model Law on Secured Transactions which is currently being prepared). The overall theme of this book is international (or cross-border) secured transactions law. The book assembles contributions from some of the most authoritative academic voices on secured financing law. The book will be of interest to those involved in secured transactions around the world, including policy-makers, practitioners, judges, arbitrators and academics.
