This new, primarily problem-based text comprehensively covers the concepts and intricacies of negotiable instruments, while also providing substantial analysis and materials regarding the bank-customer relationship and alternative payments systems, including credit cards and electronic funds transfers. The authors are both award-winning teachers who believe that the course should train students to read and interpret statutes, to recognize relevant facts, and to apply the statutory rules to such facts in ways that demonstrate the students' sensitivity to ambiguities in the rules and in the facts. Consequently, the text provides a plentiful supply of carefully crafted problems designed to enable students to develop these skills while mastering the substance of negotiable instruments law.
The accompanying Teacher's Manual (available only to professors) gives clear answers to each of the problems and offers many helpful pedagogic suggestions.
The text is fully current and examines the important issues raised by recent revisions to the UCC. In addition, the text contains several extremely valuable and user-friendly appendices, including a full glossary, which should make it largely unnecessary for an instructor to recommend any non-statutory supplements.
Professors and adjunct professors may request complimentary examination copies of LexisNexis law school publications to consider for class adoption or recommendation. Please identify the book(s) you wish to receive, provide your institutional contact information, and submit your request here.
