Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions

The problem approach featured in Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions thoroughly engages students with imaginative scenarios, presenting the material as easily accessible and as manageable as possible without avoiding the intricacies of secured transactions. Students come to appreciate that the principal resource for the course is UCC Article 9 itself. While the casebook is an essential tool for study, the law is found in the Code. Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions is carefully designed for an introductory mainstream course, not for an advanced course or seminar. The material is presented as completely comprehensible, even enjoyable rather than an arcane science than only an insider can understand. Cases are heavily edited, and liberal editorial note help express the vibrancy of true-life situations. A good mix of short and long problems gives each lesson a comprehensive linear flow while keeping students focused. A progressive mix of problems helps students see the common elements, as rules and principals learned in a simpler setting can readily be applied to more complex transactions. Earlier problems lean more heavily, though not exclusively, on the individual and consumer-borrower situations. As the lessons advance, the mix of materials progressively includes more small-business and large-business transactions.

Securitization, Structured Finance, and Capital Markets provides an introduction to securitization as a method of financing. It is suitable for an independent course or seminar in securitization and structured finance, and may also be used as supplementary reading or as advanced examples in courses in bankruptcy, secured transactions, trusts, corporations, securities regulation, corporate finance, tax, banking, or accounting. The book is organized by substantive legal areas. The first chapter provides an overview of securitization and is a terrific starting point for anyone trying to learn more about this $6 trillion industry where assets as diverse as car loans, credit card debt, student loans, home mortgages, and commercial mortgages are securitized to provide the loan originator with a source of capital at lower cost than might otherwise be available. The first chapter introduces securitization through a detailed discussion of an actual securitization of loans made to purchasers of Hondas. The Honda deal is followed as an example throughout the subsequent chapters and numerous documents from the deal are reprinted in the book. Students should benefit from the concrete example and the opportunity to examine the actual legal documents used to implement this type of financing transaction. Subsequent chapters of the book examine Article 9 of the UCC, the Bankruptcy Code, accounting issues, tax and other considerations, securities laws, and the Investment Company Act. There is a separate chapter focused on special concerns of banks securitizing loans, a chapter on international and cross-border issues in securitization, and a concluding chapter exploring the academic debate relating to the efficiency of securitization. Each chapter of the book contains discussion questions.

Security interests - charges, mortgages, pledges - are an integral feature of contemporary financing transactions. While they are most commonly employed as a means of credit support for corporate loans, security interests also perform a vital role in asset finance, project finance, securitisation and structured finance transactions. This title takes a practical approach to security interests and has been designed with the practitioner in mind. With contributions from leading experts, Secured Finance Transactions: Key Assets and Emerging Markets provides an indispensable guide to important legal developments in the field of secured finance, the taking of security interests over key business assets, the legal framework for security interests in emerging markets and innovations in credit risk management. Featuring 15 chapters, the book provides a practitioner-oriented perspective on fixed charges over circulating assets, the role of the security trustee and the prospects for reform of the English personal property security regime. The book also examines the use of security interests to support derivatives and private equity transactions and the taking of security interest over aircraft, bank accounts, cross-border receivables, intellectual property and ships. Guidance is also provided on secured finance transactions in Brazil, China, the Czech Republic, Mexico, Poland and Russia and the use of credit derivatives to manage credit risk.

Secured Transactions

Teaching Materials

Author: James J. White,G. Eric Brunstad, Jr.

Publisher: West Academic Publishing

ISBN: 9780314199898

Category: Law

Page: 705

View: 6375

This book deals with both the basics of secured transactions under Article Nine of the UCC and some of the most complex modern transactions such as repos and securitizations. To offset the complexities of the subject matter, the authors have made this text extremely user-friendly. Every chapter has extensive expository introductory material to help the student get oriented. This manageably sized book is organized by transaction (e.g., loans on equipment, loans on inventory, etc.), rather than by code section (e.g., attachment, perfection, etc.), so that students can see how various transactions develop, rather than learning about sections of the code out of context. A course on Article Nine offers the opportunity for the student to acquire an extensive and vitally important commercial law vocabulary, and this book maximizes that opportunity. In addition to extensively revising all of the former chapters, the new edition adds a new introductory chapter on the history of secured transactions and the interpretation of Article Nine (including use of the official comments), and a concluding chapter on the theory of Article Nine. This tracks modern curricular trends, including increased interest in courses on legislation and more detailed consideration of methods of statutory interpretation.

This revised and up-to-date (including the 2010 Amendments) treatment of UCC Article 9 utilizes both diagrams and questions uniquely designed to focus the student's attention on the operative facts that determine the application of the relevant code sections. The diagrams and accompanying commentary make plain what it is that each party to a secured transaction is attempting to accomplish or, in some instances, has failed to accomplish. Cases are edited and dissected using those diagrams and questions in order to both assist analysis of and navigate among relevant code sections. Appendix A contains a ''road map'' allowing the student to approach Article 9 analytically. A newly added appendix deals with the relationship between Article 9 and Agricultural Liens.

Secured Transactions Under the Uniform Commercial Code and International Commerce presents a clear and concise guide through the law of security interests included in Article 9 and Article 1. Students benefit from the user-friendly problems exploring each issue, illustrating in a concise way how the Code applies to transactions, both as to legal result and as a guide to drafting agreements and financial statements. A significant body of case law from around the country is included in this Second Edition. This new edition is even more user-friendly than the prior edition. Some highlights of the Second Edition are: • Notes on "The Role of Codes, Statutes and Case Law" and "Simplifying Complicated Statutory Language" to introduce students to statutory interpretation and help them develop skills to better understand the sometimes complicated text of Article 9. • Hypothetical Problems are used on a continuing basis to help students navigate through secured transactions from creation (Chapter 2), to enforcement (Chapter 3), to perfection and priority of the security interest (Chapter 4). With this model, students work with more interesting and more easily understood problems rather than a series of unrelated hypotheticals. • Difficult problems created by errors in financing statements, in particular with reference to names of individual debtors, are addressed with new cases interpreting Revised Article 9. • Early exposure to In Re QDS which forces them to work with difficult and complicated statutory language to distinguish the so-called "true lease" from the "dirty lease." • New materials illustrating breach of the peace, notification, and commercially reasonable foreclosure requirements. • Chapter 5 on bankruptcy has been updated to include more comprehensive analysis of the 2005 amendments to the Bankruptcy Code and expanded to include discussion of state and federal rules on fraudulent transfers. The introduction to cross-border secured transactions (Chapter 6), a topic of more and more relevance--and one typically not covered in other casebooks.

Problems and Materials

Publisher: West Academic Publishing

ISBN: 9781634597005

Category:

Page: 234

View: 5888

The core of this law school text is an extensive series of hypothetical problems designed to force students to grapple with the provisions of Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code directly, rather than relying on judicial interpretations in cases. It begins by asking students to assume the role of a junior in-house counsel just hired by a mythical bank holding company. The book then takes the students through a series of problems generated by the various lending subsidiaries of that holding company. The tone is light, with recurring characters and business entities. Extensive footnotes refer to the statutory provisions of Article 9 (as well as related provisions of the Bankruptcy Code) necessary to solve the problems and refer, in addition, to relevant cases and secondary sources that can be used as supplemental material. A comprehensive Teacherâe(tm)s Manualâe"longer than the book itselfâe"is available on line, along with a set of PowerPoint slides for in-class use. This book is intended for teachers who want an in-depth treatment of Article 9, believe Article 9 need not be drudgery either for students or instructors, and have a sense of humor. The underlying pedagogical assumptions and methods of the first two editions of the book have been retained. While there have been minor revisions to a few problems, the principal additions to the text itself include streamlined statutory citations to reflect the widespread enactment of the 2010 amendments to Article 9, numerous citations to cases (mostly decided since the 2nd edition of the book), and a revised set of PowerPoint slides setting forth the timelines for the bulk of the problems relating to attachment, perfection, and priority. The additional cases in the revised footnotes (including the recent Motors Liquidation bombshells from the Second Circuit and Supreme Court of Delaware) are discussed in an expanded Teacherâe(tm)s Manual. The additional material should either help students solve the problems or expand their understanding of the concepts covered.
