Course Description:
Businesses and individuals routinely borrow money to finance large purchases or to fund day-to-day activities. Lenders often require borrowers to pledge personal property as collateral to secure their obligations under these credit transactions. The interests held by lenders under these secured financing arrangements are called “security interests.” The course on Secured Transactions examines rules governing the attachment, perfection, and priority of security interests in personal property as set forth in Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. The course also covers legal rules governing the treatment of personal property security interests in the event of a debtor default or bankruptcy filing. Understanding the law of secured transactions is essential for attorneys who engage in a business, finance, or corporate transactions practice or in commercial litigation, consumer law, or business transactional planning. There are no prerequisites for the course, and no prior business experience is required.
