Webinar: Law Reform Commission of Saskatchewan’s Proposed Land Charges Act (CPD-190)

This webinar is being held on:

Thursday, January 25, 2018  from 12pm to 1pm (Sask. Time) | Qualifies for 1 CPD hour

Professor Ron Cuming will present the Law Reform Commission’s tentative proposals for a new Land Charges Act for Saskatchewan. Professor Cuming has identified three principal problems with Saskatchewan’s current real property security law: (1) the law lacks conceptual unity and structural coherence, (2) enforcement is inefficient; and (3) it results in an unnecessary use of court resources. The proposed Land Charges Act addresses these problems by codifying, modifying, and compiling Saskatchewan’s laws in relation to real property security into one statute. The webinar will discuss the proposed legislation and describe the Law Reform Commission’s consultation process for this project.

Please join Professor Ron Cuming from the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan, for this must-see webinar.
