Course Overview

The Uniform Commercial Code governs billions of commercial transactions occurring throughout the United States every working day. The UCC can be broken down into two major categories—transactions in goods and payment systems. This course deals with Article 1 of the Uniform Commercial Code, which I believe is the most important Article of the Code for two reasons. First, Article 1 applies to every transaction under the UCC, regardless of the substantive Article governing a particular transaction. Second, the substantive provisions of Article 1 are extremely powerful in and of themselves and can have a powerful impact on drafting and litigation. It is essential to have a thorough understanding and methodology for applying Article 1 in all UCC cases. This program covers the following:

  • History and Impact of the Uniform Commercial Code on American commerce
  • The Comprehensive Approach to Uniform Commercial Code related matters
  • Pervasive and powerful policies of the Uniform Commercial Code contained in Article 1
  • Supplemental principles of law applicable to all Uniform Commercial Code transactions by reason of Article 1
  • Key definitions contained in Article 1
  • Key drafting provisions contained in Article 1
  • Key litigation provisions contained in Article 1
