Overview

Straightforward, back-to-basics approach, engaging problems: Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions is exactly the right casebook to introduce students to the intricacies of UCC Article 9 and modern secured financing. With an artful combination of textual material, detailed citations to the UCC, engaging problems and questions, and well-edited cases, James Brook demonstrates to students that this material need not be impenetrable but can be not only completely comprehensible but enjoyable as well.

When you examine a copy of this casebook, notice the many features that are bound to make it a tremendous asset in your classroom:

• presents the material, which so many students find daunting on first approach, as easily accessible and as manageable as possible without oversimplification or avoiding difficult aspects of the topic
uses the problem-based approach with thoroughly engaging and imaginative scenarios that draw students in, encouraging the user to appreciate goals, concerns, opportunities and risks from each party’s perspective.
problems progress from simple to more complex, giving students the opportunity to appreciate the common elements and internalize the idea that 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; later problems include progressively more small-business and large-business transactions
cases are heavily edited, with editorial notes liberally used to fill in the blanks, while maintaining the underlying “story” that is present in all cases
helps student appreciate that the principal resource for the course is UCC Article 9 as found the statutory supplement. Professor Brook reinforces the concept that the casebook is a tool to be used for study, in preparing before class and during class as a guide or outline for discussion, but that the law is found in the Code
usable with either original or Revised version of Article 1
a comprehensive Teacher’s manual and a companion website for adopters that will include regular updates and a possible forum for ongoing discussion with other users

If you want an accessible, engaging, problem-based casebook to teach secured transactions, be sure to examine a copy of Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions before you teach your next course.
