Commercial Law Study Aids

Our students have a required commercial law course which includes both negotiable instruments (aka payment systems or commercial paper) and secured transactions.  This commercial law course is one of the hardest for law students, especially those without any business background.

Both course topics provide a range of study aids which are in hot demand.  A study aid that includes both topics is:

  • Secured Transactions and Payment Systems: Problems and Answers (Clarke and others, Aspen)

The study aids for negotiable instruments include:

  • Understanding Negotiable Instruments and Payment Systems (Lawrence, LexisNexis)
  • Examples and Explanations: Payment Systems (Brook, Aspen)
  • An Introduction to Payment Systems (Lawrence, Aspen)
  • Gilbert Law Summaries: Commercial Paper and Payment Law (Whaley, Thomson/BarBri)
  • Gilbert Law School Legends on Audio Cassette: Commercial Paper (Spak, Thomson/BarBri)
  • Sum and Substance Audio Casettes: Commercial Paper and Payment Law (Whaley, West Group)
  • Eamanuel Law Outlines: Payment Systems (Lawrence, Aspen)
  • Questions & Answers: Payment Systems (Maggs and Zinnecker, LexisNexis)

The study aids for secured transactions include:

  • Visualizing Secured Transactions (Bartell, LexisNexis)
  • Understanding Secured Transactions (Lawrence and others, LexisNexis)
  • Examples and Explanations: Secured Transactions (Brook, Aspen)
  • Gilbert Law Summaries: Secured Transactions (Whaley, Thomson/BarBri)
  • Black Letter Outlines: Secured Transactions (Rusch, Thomson/West)
  • Gilbert Law School Legends on Audio CD: Secured Transactions (Spak, Thomson/BarBri)
  • Questions & Answers: Secured Transactions (Markell and Zinnecker, LexisNexis)

Hopefully, students who are struggling with these topics can find study aids that assist their understanding among these selections.  (Amy Jarmon)
