Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course deals with legislation about the granting of credit, both when it comes to the rules that apply between creditor and debtor and the rules about transfer of claims and other third party conflicts. The course also covers different kinds of security such as mortgage and lien, corporate mortgages and personal guaranties. The course further covers other transactions, where the purpose of the transaction is to give security for a claim, such as sale with repurchase agreements, hire-purchase, and factoring. Another part of the course deals with problems that occur when the debtor cannot repay his debt. What rights have a creditor when the debtor is subject to execution or bankruptcy? And how are these rights affected by different kinds of security?

Intended learning outcomes

The course gives the student knowledge about the parts of the law of property and insolvency law that are related to the granting of credit and security, e.g. mortgage and lien in real propery and chattels, corporate mortgages, financial leasing, hire-purchases, factoring, and guaranties.

After having taken the course the student shall be able to:

•                     Identify legal problems and find the applicable legal rules within the areas of law covered in the course.

•                     Apply the relevant legal rules when solving legal problems within the areas of law covered in the course, and to explain the reasons for applying the rules to the problem.

•                    Analyze central sources of law and argue for different solutions to legal problems within the areas of law covered in the course.
