Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course focuses on one of the most important devices in facilitating commercial credit: security interests in personal property. The course explores the legal regulation of asset-backed loans (think of a car loan) to consumers and businesses governed by the Uniform Commercial Code. To this end, the course examines the basic rules, concepts and techniques governing the attachment, perfection, priority and enforcement of commercial financing structured as a secured transaction in personal property under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. The textbook for Fall 2014 will likely be the American Casebook Series book Problems and Materials on Secured Transactions by Linda Rusch and Stephen Sepinuck. Students also need a recent Commercial Law statutory supplement which includes the full text of U.C.C. Article 1 and Article 9. We strongly recommend not relying on an electronic version of the Commercial Law statutory supplement for this course because you need to be able to follow it along with us in class as well as take notes. In addition, it is recommended that you check the course website prior to purchasing the textbook upon your return to campus as the course book may have changed or have a new edition. This is highly important due to the end of chapter problems within the course book that will be the focus of the course. The routine for this class is to discuss the theory and substance of the law briefly and then to work a series of problems in each chapter. Please plan to prepare each problem assigned in advance of class and bring your questions to class. There is no prerequisite for this course.
