The course focuses on developing practical legal skills in problem solving, statutory interpretation, and the formulation of legal strategy. The transactions explored range from routine consumer purchases to complex business transactions. Subtopics include foreclosure; repossession; replevin; judicial sales; default; acceleration; reinstatement and cure; modification of debt in bankruptcy; the attachment, perfection, and priority of security interests; filing systems; bankruptcy avoiding powers; cross-collateralization; marshaling; and statutory liens.
Students will become familiar with the common kinds commercial transactions, the concepts of security interests, liens, and mortgages, and the governing statutes. They will be able to apply statutes, formulate legal strategies, and apply their knowledge to client counseling.
