Prof. Tony Duggan delivered the 4th Commercial Law Centre Lecture at the University of Oxford on Oct. 14, 2015. Prof. Duggan spoke on the subject of "Form and Substance in the Determination of Property Rights: Set-off, Flawed Assets and Security Interests in Cash Deposits." 

Professor Duggan's lecture concerned an issue which frequently vexes courts: whether a contract creates property rights, or merely personal rights.  The lecture focused on the decision of the Canadian Supreme Court in Caisse Populaire Desjardins de l'Est de Drummond v Canada [2009] SCC 29.
