Debtor/Creditor Relations

As a foundation, we will first study voluntary, outright conveyances of personal property: chattels, contract rights, negotiable paper (UCC Articles 3, 5, 7, and 8), and IP. Then traditional Debtor/Creditor starts: judicial seizure and sale of assets (attachment, garnishment, execution, etc.); voluntary use of assets as collateral (UCC Article 9); other liens; and basic Bankruptcy. These subjects are fundamental for a general, business, bankruptcy, or consumer protection practitioner. The course is designed to give sufficient coverage of negotiable instruments and secured transactions for bar exam purposes.

Sequencing: can be taken either year, but preferably should precede Bankruptcy for those interested in that field.
