This course focuses on security interests in personal property, which are governed by Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. Related Sections in Articles 1 and 2 will also be examined.

The course examines: (1) the rights and remedies of the secured creditor and the debtor; (2) the mechanisms and law underying obtaining perfected interests in collateral; and (3) the priority of the secured creditor over others such as other Article 9 security interests holders, the bankruptcy trustee, sellers, buyers  and federal tax liens.
