The global financial crisis has led to a re-evaluation worldwide of many well-established methods for raising funds and managing credit risk. From a legal perspective, this involves an inquiry into the relationship between lenders and borrowers and the legal instruments that lenders have at their disposal to mitigate the risk of a borrower‘s default. This subject is designed to provide students with an overview of the fundamental legal principles relating to the provision of credit to businesses and the legal design of key financing transactions. These range from ‘vanilla’ unsecured loans to those supported by guarantees and enterprise-wide security interests and, finally, to more complex structures such as securitisation. This subject also provides an overview of recent Australian reforms as well as recent international initiatives to harmonise cross-border financing transactions.
