Course Description:
This is an advanced business contracts course that studies transactions involving the sale, leasing, and licensing of goods to businesses and consumers. The course examines various types of commercial contracts including emerging issues in electronic contracting and computer related property. Liability of manufacturers, dealers, and other sellers for economic losses caused by product failures is reviewed in depth. Brief treatment is given to parallel issues in international sales contracts. The primary body of law studied is the Uniform Commercial Code, Article 2 and related provisions, but other important commercial contracting statutes are introduced, such as the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act(UETA), the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act(E-SIGN), the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA) and special federal statutes, such as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. The course also provides a basic introduction to the Convention on International Sale of Goods (CISG). The legal rules and practice skills covered in this course are fundamental for attorneys who advise clients on business matters and/or engage in litigation for business or consumer interests.
