Security for Future Payments: Narrated Multi-Media Electronic Lessons
The John Marshall Law School
These electronic essays discuss methods that credit lenders and credit sellers use to secure future payments of debts, i.e. credit payments. Three of the topics that are covered - mortgages, Article 9 secured transactions, and suretyship promises – are tested heavily on the bar exam. The fourth topic, credit default swaps, is not generally tested on the bar. However, credit default swaps are worthy of analysis because they played a major role in the near-collapse of the world's economy in 2008.
