The book deals with some of the most complex and interesting modern transactions such as "repos" and "securitization." To offset the complexities of the subject matter, however, Professor White has 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 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.
Secured transactions law has been subjected to a close scrutiny over the last two decades. One of the main reasons for this is the importance of availability of credit and the consequent need to reform collateral laws in order to improve access to finance. The ability to give security effectively influences not only the cost of credit but also, in some cases, whether credit will be available at all. This requires rules that are transparent and readily accessible to non-lawyers as well as rules that recognise the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises. This book critically engages with the challenges posed by inefficient secured credit laws. It offers a comparative analysis of the reasons and the needs for a secured transactions law reform, as well as discussion of the steps taken in many common law, civil law and mixed law jurisdictions. The book, written under the auspices of the Secured Transactions Law Reform Project, informs the debate about reform and advances novel arguments written by world renowned experts that will build upon the existing literature, and as such will be of interest to academics, legal practitioners and the judiciary involved in secured transactions law around the world. The text considers reform initiatives that have taken place up to the end of April 2016. It has not been possible to incorporate events since then into the discussion. However, notable developments include the banks decree passed by the Italian Government on 29th June 2016, and the adoption of the Model Law on Secured Transactions by UNCITRAL on 1st July 2016.

"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.
This unique study guide uses visual aids such as charts and diagrams to foster student understanding and application of the law governing secured transactions. The organization of the material tracks the outline and scope of traditional Secured Transactions casebooks and covers Article 9 of the UCC and related UCC provisions and sections of the Bankruptcy Code. It takes the basic areas covered by Article 9 and creates a visual aid for the statutory provisions typically assigned in connection with those areas. Some visual aids cover a single section while others summarize a number of sections bearing on a single topic. The overarching goal is to help students see the organizational structure and create visual clues for remembering content.

This Understanding treatise provides students with an analysis of the underlying rationales of Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, the federal Bankruptcy Code as it relates to Article 9, and other relevant state and federal legislation. Familiarity with these rationales is critical for a true understanding of the law of secured transactions. The Fifth Edition was necessitated by a significant set of amendments to revised Article 9 promulgated by the sponsors in 2012. The amendments have been enacted in over half the states, with a deferred effective date of July 1, 2013. The organization of this text is largely based upon the traditional five-part approach to the law of secured transactions: • Scope of the article; • Attachment of security interests; • Perfection of security interests; • Priorities among competing claimants (including extensive treatment of the effects of bankruptcy on security interests); and • Enforcement of security interests. In addition, this treatise explains in practical terms the essential elements of different types of secured transactions, giving students a perspective that is crucial to their ability to understand how Article 9 functions in the real world. For example, it describes the structure and use of financing arrangements that are made possible through such techniques as asset-based securitization, mortgage warehouse lending, terminal and field warehousing, financing of accounts, factoring of accounts, and floor planning, as well as other methods of transacting business. Entries in the Table of Contents include a descriptive word phrase, along with relevant section numbers of the UCC and the Bankruptcy Code. The Table of Contents does not cite all the provisions that might be relevant, but only the most fundamental provisions relating to the particular topic. This approach should aid students using the book as a supplemental text by enabling them to find the relevant discussion based on either the subject or the basic statutory section numbers. The Index and the Table of Statutes and Authorities enable a more detailed search.
