Secured Credit

Law School

Recommended for route(s):

[ Academia ] Business Law: Commercial Transactions & Licensing

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] as a Key Elective : Many commercial loan transactions involve the lender taking a secured interest in assets of the creditor. Lawyers who work on lender-creditor transactions must understand the area of security interests and rights of secured and unsecured creditors. Secured Credit, often called "secured transactions" by practitioners, covers a key part of the Uniform Commercial Code regarding security interests in personal property.

General course Description:

This course surveys the law of raising funds by granting security interests in personal property. Security interests affect the creditor's rights if the debtor is unable to repay the loan; as a result, they significantly affect the terms on which capital can be raised. They affect industries ranging from traditional manufacturing to high tech start-ups; they also play a role in consumer loans (and help explain the movie "Repo Man"). The course focuses primarily on Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, but also considers the federal Bankruptcy Code, the federal intellectual property statutes, and other state and federal laws. This is the second of three courses (the other two are Bankruptcy and Payment Systems) dealing with the financing of commercial ventures through means other than the sale of corporate stock. These courses may be taken in any order: neither presupposes any knowledge of the others. Students who cannot take all three should probably prioritize them in the order they are listed-that is, Bankruptcy is the single most important course to take, then Secured Credit, then Payment Systems. Please note that Payment Systems is not offered every year.

Course Style: A Substantive/Statutory course deals with law, theory, and policy in the context of a particular code or statutory scheme.

Course Frequency: Offered once a year
