Secured Transactions Law Reform Project—Update

Secured Transactions Law Reform Project—Update

Dr Magda Raczynska, a lecturer in Law at Bristol University and deputy executive director of the Secured Transactions Law Reform Project (the Project) recently gave us an update on the Project.

Secured Transactions Law Reform Project (the Project) continues its work on the need and shape of the reform of the law security interests in personal property and title-based devices. It is driven by a thought that modern English law ought to be responsive to the needs of the commercial and financial community. This is of particular importance given the role of London as one of the world’s leading financial centres and of English law as one of the world’s leading systems of transactional law and enforcement of rights. Of equal significance is the growing number of jurisdictions, which are updating their secured transaction laws across the world. Click here for some recent developments.

Continuous engagement with practitioners and users of the law of all sectors is at the heart of the Project. This takes place through:

  • meetings of the Project’s four working groups;
  • seminars and conferences;
  • online consultation on provisional recommendations (coming soon to via the Project website).

The Project’s working groups, whose members are drawn from legal practice, academia and financial industry, focus on issues of creation and perfection of security (Working Group A); priorities (Working Group B); enforcement and insolvency (Working Group C)
