Overview of the new CTP scheme

The Motor Accident Injuries Bill 2017 (NSW) was passed by New South Wales Parliament on 30 March 2017 and was assented to on 4 April 2017.

PPS war stories

1 CPD Units Online
PPSA war stories puts the spotlight on recent case law relating to the Personal Properties Securities Act 2009 (Cth) (PPS Act).

As we know, the PPS Act commenced on 30 January 2012. Our new personal property securities (PPS) regime represents one of the most significant changes to property and securities law in Australia for many years. The PPS Act literally transforms the way personal property is dealt with in relation to security interests.
