Abstract

The Introduction to Developing Professional Skills: Secured Transactions (West Academic, forthcoming Nov. 2017) – paired with the Introduction to the Teacher’s Manual – give a sense of these ten modular exercises in contract drafting. Designed to supplement a commercial law course with ABA-required transition-to-practice credits, the ten exercises have students negotiate and draft the documents for a financed sale of a hardware store: a promissory note, financing statement, and security agreement. For 3-credit courses, the book also includes exercises for a personal guaranty, perfecting a security interest in motor vehicles and fixtures, complying with professional ethics in a transactional context, and compiling a portfolio with a cover letter to the client.

Keywords: secured transactions, legal education, commercial law, contract drafting
