This monograph seeks the optimal way to promote compatibility between systems of proprietary security rights in Europe, focusing on security rights over tangible movables and receivables. Based on comparative research, it proposes how best to tackle cross-border problems impeding trade and finance, notably uncertainty of enforceability and unexpected loss of security rights. It offers an extensive analysis of the academic literature of more recent years that has appeared in English, German, the Scandinavian languages and Finnish. The author organises the concrete means of promoting compatibility into a centralised substantive approach, a centralised conflicts-approach, a local conflicts-approach and a local substantive approach. The centralised approaches develop EU law, and the local approaches Member State laws. The substantive approaches unify or harmonise substantive law, while the conflicts approaches rely on private international law. The author proposes determining the optimal way to promote compatibility by objective-based division of labour between the four approaches. The objectives developed for that purpose are derived from the economic functions of security rights, the conditions for legal evolution and a transnational conception of justice. This book is an important contribution to the future of secured transactions law in Europe and more widely. It will be of interest to academics, policymakers and legal practitioners involved in this field.

Help your students understand the realities of commercial practice and the relationship between the rules and the transactions they govern. The authors -- recognized for their outstanding teaching ability as well as their superb scholarship -- cut across arbitrary content boundaries to organize their casebook by system, rather than rules.The book's three parts take a real-life approach to the law: -- Sales Systems -- progresses logically from formation of agreements to a discussion of terms, performance, and remedies.-- Payment and Credit Systems -- covers checking accounts, credit cards, wire transfers, letters of credit, and payment systems of the future, such as stored-value cards and electronic money; competition for deferring payment, negotiable instruments and liquidity, remedies under state law and remedies in bankruptcy, and creation of security interests and secured transactions.-- Creditor-Third Party Relationship -- deals with perfection, maintaining perfection, priority, and competition for collateral.This approach shows students that the law is one element of a system that includes legal rules, the people who engage in transactions, contracts designed to guide the transaction, and the physical tools used to consummate them.
