Course Outline: Because lenders are concerned with ensuring debtors repay them, a lot of lending only occurs if the debtor puts up some collateral for the loan. This course examines the law that governs these transactions--the law of secured financing--found in Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. We will discuss how a lender obtains a security interest in a debtor's property, how a lender perfects its interest, and what happens when two lenders claim an interest in the same property. The course is taught using a problem-based approach.
