A work of astonishing erudition … combining rigorous legal analysis with a deep understanding of secured transactions and of the economic rationale of personal property security… an indispensable vade mecum for those involved or interested in the subject.
-Sir Roy Goode
Emeritus Professor of Law, Oxford University
Australian Personal Property Securities Law offers clear, concise commentary on the legislation and its implementation, implications and impact.
This second edition has been updated to take into account the legislative and case law developments since the PPSA commenced operation on 30 January 2012, the most significant development being the recently completed Statutory Review Report. The Report made 349 recommendations for improving the statute and the register, and this new edition incorporates comprehensive references to the recommendations, along with critical analysis where appropriate.
Written by distinguished academics and international experts in the area, Australian Personal Property Securities Law provides analytical depth and expert policy interpretation, making this an invaluable resource for commercial practitioners and students, the courts, governments and the banking and finance industry.
