How do you take one of the most complicated bodies of law in the U.S.—the Uniform Commercial Code—and make it not only comprehensible but entertaining? Attending this seminar is the only way to find out! The UCC governs virtually every phase of a transaction in goods, as well as payment systems used in these transactions and in commerce generally. Robert LeVine, author of The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy, will provide you with a solid working knowledge of the meaning of the text of the UCC. Develop an understanding of how the various articles of the UCC fit together. Gain key strategies for drafting documents and litigating matters within the scope of the UCC. Attorneys with this knowledge will have a significant advantage at every phase of a transaction governed by the UCC, whether it is transactional, in litigation, or during the ongoing business process.
