Principles determining respective priorities arise directly from the competitive nature of our increasingly complex society and form the heart of our commercial legal system. The measure of a successful lawyer is the extent to which she or he steers clients to positions of enjoying priority.

This course is of fundamental importance to solicitors in avoiding, and barristers in resolving, priority disputes. As our laws grapple with trying to regulate and reconcile greater numbers and kinds of interests in real and personal property, rules determining priority become more numerous and complex.

Relatively new legal codes such as the PPSA are required (and regularly revised) to keep pace with our ever-evolving commercial landscape. Old laws such as those governing bankruptcy are under constant pressure to reform in light of our changing values.

Will secured lending under the Bank Act survive the latest attack on its 18th-century priority system? Will the federal Crown collect more tax arrears through its new approaches?

Learn the latest and avoid being stranded on second base.

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 6 hours (this course will contain a minimum of 1 hour pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
