Secured Transactions

Course Number: 
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 Ronald L. Mann et al, ed., Comprehensive Commercial Law: Statutory Supplement (Aspen 2013). (You probably already have this one if you took Payment Systems last fall, and there should be used copies available.) The other Aspen choice (somewhat less expensive and lighter, but less comprehensive) is Elizabeth Warren et al, ed., Bankruptcy and Article 9: 2013 Statutory Supplement (Aspen 2013).  A 2012 edition of either book should work just fine, and should be readily available used.  Other statute books are available containing UCC Article 9 and  the Bankruptcy Code ; 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 13 at 9:30 a.m.  Please read and be prepared to discuss the following in the LoPucki & Warren casebook:

Introduction (pages xxxi-xxxvii)

Assignment 1 (pages 3-21).

I look forward to seeing you on January 13.
