LAWS 814 - Structuring Secured Transactions

Credits: 3

This course covers the same material as LAWS 615: the creation, perfection, priority, and enforcement of security interests under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. This course, however, analyzes Article 9 from a more transactional perspective than LAWS 615. The primary focus of the course is on structuring transactions to resolve potentially controversial issues through prior agreements rather than subsequent litigation. Students, working both individually and in groups, will draft written responses to problems and present those responses in class. In addition, students will be assigned exercises including drafting financing statements and the provisions of security agreements, intercreditor agreements, and third party opinion letters.

Note: Students who have taken Secured Transactions cannot enroll in this course.
