Paula Moffatt, reader in Banking Law at Nottingham Law School and member of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law, has been appointed to the Advisory Group on the Secured Transactions Code set up by the Financial Law Committee of The City of London Law Society.

The Advisory Group is made up of prominent practitioners, representatives of the banking world and experienced academics researching in the field of financial law. The Advisory Group, which also contains members from the devolved jurisdictions within the United Kingdom, is chaired by Richard Calnan, a practitioner and noted author of a text on secured transactions.

The Advisory Group's work will be to consider the feasibility of introducing a secured transactions code to simplify and modernise the law of secured transactions in England. Secured transactions are chiefly used as a vehicle for financial transactions by enabling structures to be created to protect creditors taking security over debtors' property.

The Advisory Group will liaise with both the Financial Markets Law Committee and the Insolvency Service as to the impact of the proposed reforms.
