This text, co-authored by an experienced professor and a distinguished practitioner, uses plain English explanations, samples of security agreements, numerous visual aids, and problems drawn from actual cases to teach the law of personal property secured transactions. It is aimed at upper division students who are tired of reading and briefing cases and are interested in what lawyers really do. The book relies on a skilled practitioner's judgment to guide the presentation and emphasis of materials. Students will emerge from this course with a real understanding of how a good lawyer would proceed to handle a case involving UCC Article 9.
The second edition updates the original text to reflect the 2022 amendments to the UCC, including new Article 12, "Controllable Electronic Records," and the many changes that have been made to Article 9 to accommodate it.
