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.

"Secured Transactions" combines original material with recent cases to teach students about secured financing under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. Students will learn how to identify basic Article 9 issues and craft solutions for them. The book begins with an explanation of secured vs. unsecured financing, and addresses how transactions were dealt with before the institution of Article 9. It then discusses specific aspects of Article 9 including its scope, creating and protecting a security interest, priorities, exceptions, fixtures, proceeds, and enforcement. The book is built around a series of problems that connect the cases and the original material back to the actual text of Article 9. The original material clarifies and contextualizes the legal issues, providing background and support as readers approach the cases. The inclusion of specific cases demonstrates how legal principles are, and have been, applied in the real world, enabling students to more deeply understand automatic perfection, certificates of title, statutory liens, commercial reasonableness, subordination, and more. The problems emphasize the importance of reading statutes carefully and holistically. "Secured Transactions" successfully balances the study of law, and its application. It ably supports instructors without binding them to the text, and is an ideal book for basic courses in secured transactions. Larry Bates earned his J.D. from the Marquette University School of Law, and his LL.M from Harvard Law School. He spent nine years in practice as a corporate bankruptcy specialist before joining the faculty of Baylor Law School as a professor of law, where he teaches contracts and commercial law, including international and domestic sales law and secured transactions. Professor Bates is also the faculty advisor to the "Baylor Law Review." He is the author of numerous professional writings on commercial law and bankruptcy, and a member of the American Bar Association's committee that oversees the National Appellate Advocacy Competition.
