Secured Transactions

Course Number: 
53301
Professor: 
Michael D. Floyd

The casebook for our course on secured transactions will be Lynn M. LoPucki & Elizabeth Warren, Secured Credit: A Systems Approach (7th ed. 2012).

You will also need a statute book. Aspen offers two different statutory supplements, either of which will work fine for this course (and the Bankruptcy course, if you’re also taking that). The bookstore has ordered the Elizabeth Warren, Bankruptcy and Article 9: 2012 Statutory Supplement (Aspen 2012). The other Aspen choice is Ronald L. Mann et al, ed., Comprehensive Commercial Law: Statutory Supplement (Aspen 2012), which is a little heavier and more expensive but a better choice if you’re also planning to take the Payment Systems course. A 2011 edition of either book should work just fine. There should be used copies available of the Mann et al  Comprehensive 2011 edition, which I used last year for Bankruptcy, Payment Systems, and Secured Transactions. Other statute books are available containing the Bankruptcy Code and UCC Article 9; any of those from the past year or two should suffice. If you have a question about whether a particular statute book will work, I’ll be happy to discuss that with you.

Our first class meeting will be on Monday, January 7, at 9:00 a.m. Please read and be prepared to discuss the following in the LoPucki & Warren casebook, paying particular attention to the problems at the end of the casebook’s Assignment 1:

  • Introduction (pages xxxi-xxxvii)
  • Assignment 1 (pages 3-21).

I look forward to seeing you on January 7.
