Our casebook is Douglas J. Whaley & Stephen M. McJohn, Commercial Law (11th ed. 2016) (ISBN 978-1-4548-6334-2). In addition to the casebook, you must have a compilation of commercial statutes no more than four years old that has the Uniform Commercial Code and its comments together with the Bankruptcy Code and Regulation CC of the Federal Reserve Board. The compilations published by West and Foundation Press are both acceptable.
For our first class, please read the Preface and the Introduction to the casebook, i.e., pages xxvii and xxviii and pages 1 to 3. In the Preface, the authors explain the introductory signals they use in their citations to the Code they make in the problems we will take up. Be mindful of these signals when you prepare your answers to the problems in our first assignment, pages 391 to 405 and 412 to 424 of the casebook.
