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?
