No responsible lawyer who facilitates business transactions or litigates civil cases can afford to ignore or treat lightly the Code’s remedial parts, yet for many students they can be confusing if not intimidating. Students and practitioners alike will benefit from this in depth conversation. Come join us, ask questions, linger, mingle, and most of all enjoy an afternoon of immersion in the UCC. Learn more. >
