  • Description

    The problem approach featured in Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions thoroughly engages students with imaginative scenarios, presenting the material as easily accessible and as manageable as possible without avoiding the intricacies of secured transactions. Students come to appreciate that the principal resource for the course is UCC Article 9 itself. While the casebook is an essential tool for study, the law is found in the Code. Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions is carefully designed for an introductory mainstream course, not for an advanced course or seminar. The material is presented as completely comprehensible, even enjoyable, rather than an arcane science that only an insider can be expected to understand. Cases are heavily edited, and liberal editorial notes help express the vibrancy of true-life situations. A good mix of short and long problems gives each lesson a comprehensive linear flow while keeping students focused. A progressive mix of problems helps students see the common elements, as rules and principals learned in a simpler setting can readily be applied to more complex transactions. Earlier problems lean more heavily, though not exclusively, on the individual and consumer-borrower situations. As the lessons advance, the mix of materials progressively includes more small-business and large-business transactions.

  • Author Information

    James Brook

    After graduating cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1972, Professor Brook joined a general corporate practice firm in Boston. In 1975, he was awarded a Bigelow Teaching Fellowship at the University of Chicago Law School and found teaching law students the art of research and legal writing extremely rewarding. Offered a position at New York Law School in 1976, he came to New York, a city in which he had always wanted to live, to use his legal training in a way he had always found most personally rewarding — teaching. Professor Brook’s field is commercial law, and it is his first-year classes that he consistently finds most interesting and challenging.
    About 10 years ago, Professor Brook began writing the first of his three very successful &"Examples and Explanations” books for Aspen Publishers on three major areas of law: secured transactions, payment systems, and sales and leases. His first book, A Lawyer’s Guide to Probability and Statistics (Carswell, 1990), utilized his math background—he was a Phi Beta Kappa math major at Harvard—to shed some light on a field where a great deal of fact-finding and proof in litigation is based on probability and statistics. A 1981–82 Finkelstein Fellow at Columbia Law School, where he pursued studies in the area of probability and statistics and the law, he received his LL.M. from Columbia in 1983.
    Professor Brook’s &"Examples and Explanations” books, which he updates approximately every three years, rely on his colloquial and humorous style of writing and teaching, a style that he maintains makes commercial law far more accessible and less intimidating than it might otherwise be. His most recent addition to the collection is Secured Transactions: Examples & Explanations, Fourth Edition (Aspen Publishers, 2008).
