Trusts and Insolvency Conference

The theme of the talk will be to consider the relevance of the proprietary theory/ obligational theory in relation to the operation of trusts law in practice in relation not only to Insolvency but private trusts generally and to what extent legal theory generally can or cannot shed light on underlying questions of trust law in practice generally and also the use the Quistclose trust in insolvency cases

Speaking at this conference we will have Atlantic Chambers specialist, Graham Sellers, joining him will be David Dennis , LL.B (Hull) by research (Liverpool), Lecturer in Law, The Open University Law School.


 Property Law Lecture:

"The Last in Line: Occupiers and Third Parties.  Too Many Steps, Too Far?"

Martin Dixon, Professor of the Law of Real Property, University of Cambridge


Liverpool Law School and Atlantic Chambers present the Property Law Lecture at the University of Liverpool.

The lecture will consider whether the way in which the courts currently interpret and apply legislation in priority disputes between proprietary occupiers and third parties misrepresents the policy balance intended by that legislation. Or, in other words, are judges favouring money over homes.
