The law of secured transactions has seen dramatic changes in the last decade. International organisations have been working on multiple projects, such as the creation of international texts aimed at the modernisation of secured financing laws and the implementation of international standards in countries which need access to finance. Countries' responses to these changes have ranged from the adoption of a comprehensive scheme to the implementation of only limited legal changes.

This important new work untangles the changes and responses to them. Written by a team of contributors of international renown, it offers perspectives from both the civil and common law traditions. Contributions will examine: national secured financing law and UNCITRAL secured financing texts compared; inventory and receivables financing; financing against security in bank accounts; intellectual property financing; financing against the security of non-intermediated securities; law applicable to security interests in movable property; and the enforcement of security interests in insolvency.

By tracking the debate on secured transactions law from an international and comparative perspective, the collection will appeal to a broad base of academics, practitioners and policy makers.
