Course Overview

Article 2 deals with sales of tangible personal property, beginning with the formation of a contract, obligations and performance of the parties, as well as remedial rights involved when either a buyer or seller breaches his or her agreement. Article 2 is a very active and dynamic article reflecting the reality of the marketplace. As such, there are numerous sections in the UCC which require timely action by both parties, the failure of which can result in very negative consequences. Often, this intermediate action—i.e.—after drafting and before litigation—must be done very quickly and it is imperative for anyone involved in Article 2 transactions to have solid handle on these provisions. Article 2 draws a major distinction between merchants and non merchants in key areas such as the Statute of Frauds, warranties, firm offers, and modification among others. Article 2 also recognizes the reality that oftentimes, there is no formalized written contract between parties and provides missing terms as long as the parties intended to contract and there is reasonably certain basis for giving an appropriate remedy. Included within this program are the following topics:

  • Scope of Article 2
  • Key definitions contained in Article 2
  • Contracts in general under Article 2
  • Specialized contracts under Article 2
  • Warranties under Article 2
  • Shipping terms and risk of loss under Article 2
  • Performance obligations under Article 2
  • Breach, repudiation and excuse under Article 2
  • Remedies under Article 2
  • Key provisions for drafting and litigation under Article 2
