Secured Transactions     LAW-642

Secured Transactions is the study of the system of secured lending—that is, lending against collateral—and how commercial law helps serve business and public needs. The course is structured to be interactive and relies on student participation through “problem sets” which resemble role playing or simulation exercises. Students will learn about Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, filing and mortgage recordation systems, and will gain practical experience drafting a very basic security agreement and financing statement.
