The premier authority on secured transactions, Secured Transactions: A Systems Approach is known for its cutting-edge coverage, dynamic pedagogy, and ease of use for instructors. The Systems Approach gives students the big picture. Straightforward explanations and cases prepare the students to solve real-life problems in the context of actual transactions. A modular structure allows for tremendous flexibility in course design. The materials are divided into bite-sized assignments, making it easier for instructors to make and adjust assignments for class. This problem-based casebook supports the teaching of Article 9 alone or expansion of the course to include Article 9 in the full context of bankruptcy, mortgages, judicial liens, and statutory liens.
