There is no need to mention the importance of entrusting one's property to another person in modern society. Protecting the interests of entrusting persons through safe legal systems is quite beneficial for the whole social economy.
Among different themes discussed in this field (property management law), I am particularly interested in and researching account of profits and bankruptcy remoteness. The former raises the question: Where a party has entrusted its property to the other party, and the latter obtains unjust profits by misappropriating the property, will the entrusting party be entitled to claims beyond actual damages?
The latter raises the question: Where a party who was entrusted a property by the other party has gone bankrupt, will the property constitute the bankruptcy estate? In what case will the property not so constitute?
The long-term (10-20-year) objective of my research is to define contract law theory and private law systems in a larger sense through my research of the above-mentioned individual topics.
