LAW101  A  COMMERCIAL LAW: SECURED TRANSACTIONS

Course Description
This is a course in the law of secured transactions. The focus is upon Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, although the course also covers transactions secured by interests in financial assets, much of which is governed by Article 8 of the UCC. The course proceeds by introducing the foundation concepts of the attachment, perfection, and priority of security interests, in considerable detail, including questions of the competition between security interests and Federal tax liens. It applies these foundational concepts to particular settings, including those involving securities, intellectual property (patents, copyrights, trademarks), leases and consignments, and fixtures. The student is introduced to problems involving the creation and enforcement of security interests in bankruptcy, including questions of preferences and fraudulent conveyances.
