The law relating to personal property has been of central importance to lawyers in all fields of practice, since well before the King's Bench in 1722 famously proclaimed the principle of "finders, keepers". That is never more true than today, with the personal property security regimes in each jurisdiction providing comprehensive rules to govern the rights of creditors and debtors when personal property is used as collateral to secure the payment of a debt.

This valuable volume delivers a national, organized summary of the legislation and case law which are relevant to the common law field of personal property law and to the creation, perfection, and enforcement of security in personal property.
