Course Memo

A detailed review of the law that governs the creation and enforcement of security interests in personal property to secure the repayment of debt. This would include security agreements involving fixtures and personal property that is "fixed" to real property such as a home appliance. The course primarily concerns Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. Other statutory liens which are generally not governed by Article 9 but by the individual statute that creates them will also be reviewed, as will bankruptcy and other laws that affect the enforcement of security interests.
