It will also consider related transactions such as set-off, flawed asset arrangements, retention of title clauses, various forms of guarantees and letters of comfort. Current legal issues in a range of security and quasi-security transactions such as floating charges and fixed charges will be dealt with as well as some discussion of priorities disputes under the current system and posssible directions for reform of the existing law.
