This course covers the creation, perfection, and enforcement of security interests in personal property. The main focus is Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code but other laws for different kinds of property (such as intellectual property or fixtures) are also covered. The laws governing real property mortgages are used as a point of comparison to the personal property rules. The course uses the problem method. An emphasis is placed on counseling hypothetical creditor or debtor clients and on the role of lawyers in both transactional and litigation situations. The course is useful for students interested in corporate finance, bankruptcy, mergers and acquisitions, commercial litigation, and real estate.
