The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy marks the first time in the history of legal education that a novel has been used as a vehicle for delivering the content of a substantive body of law; in this case, a pervasive statutory scheme The Uniform Commercial Code, law in all fifty states. Mirroring the factual assumptions upon which the UCC was drafted, The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy places the application of these laws in concrete and interesting commercial settings where they come to life. Logical reader questions are anticipated, and answered through a variety of communication channels uniquely available to the format chosen: dialogue, memoranda of law, texting and emails, are illustrative. If you are in business, the Uniform Commercial Code directly, impacts your business hundreds, perhaps thousands of times per day. Virtually every phase of a transaction in goods, from sale or lease through financing, is impacted by the laws of the UCC. Of particular significance are those provisions which can literally save a business from going under. These potential landmines need to be identified before they are stepped on. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy accomplishes this important task. Consumers should understand the basic laws the surround and govern their purchases leases and financing of goods. They should also understand, as should businesses, the impact of signing a promissory note, how the transfer of that note can affect one 's rights, and how to protect one 's rights when promissory notes are executed. Understanding how to protect your rights in these transactions is both empowering and essential. The mass and complexity of the Uniform Commercial Code has made comprehension and learning the content very challenging. The ease of learning is greatly enhanced by the approach utilized in The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy. As one prominent attorney and author wrote in a recently published book review: Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus! In this case, he comes in the form of former University of Miami School of Law professor Robert M. LeVine, who has made one of the most complicated bodies of law in the United States the Uniform Commercial Code not only comprehensible but entertaining. Tom Shuck, Esq. Past President, Federal Bar Association Federal Bar Association Journal, August 2111 Law students, business students, and CPA 's must know the Uniform Commercial Code. It is essential to graduate from law school and is on the bar examination of every state, and the CPA examination as well. The following are illustrative of testimonials received on The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy: It 's true. The UCC is just as daunting as it looks, and this book is the key to unlocking its mysteries. Infused with practicality, The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy combines every day transactions with straightforward law, allowing students to not only navigate the UCC with ease, but also develop a lasting understanding of the material. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy 's revolutionary approach to the UCC has extensive application both in and out of the classroom as a resource for professors and a study aid for students. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy by LeVine was my key to success in understanding the UCC, and enjoying it! Melissa Carroll Stetson University College of Law I was amazed. I never thought it possible to make the UCC interesting but I was wrong. For once I had found a book which made me understand the meaning and interrelationships among sections, and at the same time, I enjoyed reading it. F. William Harvey JD, MBA, Wharton School of Business The knowledge contained in the Uniform Commercial Code is invaluable to anyone in business, or any American who is involved in basic consumer transactions. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy creates a pathway to this level in a unique and entertaining manner.

Publisher: Wolters Kluwer Law & Business
ISBN: 1454885645
Category: Law
Page: 1248
View: 1978
Contracts: Cases and Doctrine, Sixth Edition, features a mix of lightly-edited classic and contemporary cases that stresses current contract doctrine along with the essential lawyering skill of case analysis—how to sift through the facts of the case to discern the prevailing rules and theory. Randy Barnett and Nate Oman’s innovative text introduces each case and provides the historical background of the iconic cases that make the study of contract law engaging. Study Guide questions help students identify salient issues as they read each case. Judicial biographies of each judge provides additional context. Key Features of the New Edition: The 6th Edition has been edited to make it even more modular and therefore easier for professors to select which doctrines to cover. The introductory materials have been shortened to permit a speedier entry to whichever basic doctrine the professor chooses to begin with. A new section on public policy defenses has been added. Recent developments involving arbitration agreements in the wake of the Supreme Court’s AT&T Mobility case are also covered. In addition, roughly a dozen new cases have been substituted, chosen for their interesting facts or their proven pedagogical usefulness. As always, every effort is made to provide students with background materials on the litigation, such as new judicial biographies and excerpts from recently published scholarship dealing with the cases covered. New cases include: Jordan v. Knafel Arnold Porter v. Fuqua Industries Nguyen v. Barnes & Noble Inc. Also, in keeping with the book’s focus on the “classic” cases we have included some iconic cases missing from earlier editions, including: Masterson v. Sine Security Stove & Manfacturing Co. v. American Railway Express Lefkowitz v. Great Minneapolis Surplus Store Lawrence v. Fox Harris v. Watson

Perspectives on the Uniform Commercial Code


Author: Douglas E. Litowitz
Publisher: N.A
ISBN: 9781594604386
Category: Law
Page: 172
View: 4215
"This anthology effectively destroys the widely held belief that the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is a sterile and lifeless maze. Whereas most teaching and scholarship on the UCC has concerned itself with narrow issues surrounding one or more provisions, this book tackles the wider topics that make the UCC a living, experimental, and sometimes controversial text.The book begins with a treatment of the codification movement from which the UCC project was born and then turns to the history and drafting of the UCC, including selections from its principal drafters. Litowitz then raises pointed questions about the jurisprudence and interpretation of the UCC, including challenges from critics. After discussing often-neglected issues surrounding the social and political implications of the UCC, the discussion turns to currently pressing problems such as the amendment process and the arguments surrounding federalization. Students and professors alike will find the anthology a wonderful complement to the standard materials assigned in commercial law classes, facilitating a broader scholarly discussion of the UCC."
