Electronic Title in the New Millennium

Christensen, Sharon A. & Stickley, Amanda P. (2000) Electronic Title in the New Millennium. The Flinders Journal of Law Reform, 4(2), pp. 209-234.


As in all aspects of life and work, technology is making its presence felt with the introduction of electronic title in the Torrens system. Although the use of technology will provide greater access to information and faster registration, streamlining conveyancing, other issues arise. The effect on registration processes, conveyancing practice, the possibility of fraud and indefeasibility all need to be considered. This paper examines the practical and theoretical issues associated with the introduction of electronic title and greater reliance on computer information.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
