The core of this law school casebook is an extensive set of hypothetical problems designed to force students to come to grips with Article 9 provisions directly, assuming that the student has just been hired as a junior in-house counsel for a mythical bank holding company. It then takes the student through the series of problems generated by various lending subsidiaries. The tone is light, with recurring characters, and footnotes which include the necessary Code citations and case citations to supplement the included materials. This book is intended for teachers who want an in depth treatment of Article 9, believe Article 9 need not be drudgery either for students or instructors, and have a sense of humor. The new edition adds some new problems and text and includes a substantial number of recent cases and secondary sources to the footnotes that will help students both answer the problems and extend their understanding of the concepts being covered.
