SECURED TRANSACTIONS, STATUTES, PROBLEMS, AND CASES
By Michael K. Molitor & Frank C Aiello
Secured Transactions: Statutes, Problems, and Cases comprehensively covers the law of Secured Transactions under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, including collateral classification, attachment, methods of perfection, priority disputes, subsequent events such as changes in the debtor's location, proceeds, fixtures, and the secured party's remedies upon the debtor's default. It also contains a chapter on bankruptcy law and a chapter concerning leases, consignments, and other advanced issues. In addition to detailed explanatory material, each chapter contains dozens of problems for in-class discussion that require students to delve into and apply the UCC and related case law. The appendix to the textbook contains over 150 practice multiple-choice questions with a detailed answer key and explanations that will allow students to develop and assess their mastery of the material.
