LAWS 6682 Commercial Law: Secured Transactions (Fall: 4 )

Course Description

This course explores secured financing - transactions in which a creditor, a lender or a seller, takes a security interest in collateral to secure its ability to be repaid. The course focuses principally on secured transactions involving personal property and fixtures (Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code). It examines the debtor-secured creditor relationship at state law and in bankruptcy. The course adopts a problem-solving approach. Class time is devoted almost exclusively to analyzing the assigned problem. This is a basic or "primer" course for business law practice. It also provides an intense experience in interpreting statutes.
