Contracting Out of the UCC

Aa_4 Kudos to the Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review, for the massive and excellent recent symposium issue, Contracting Out of the Uniform Commercial Code.  The volume, dedicated to well-known commercial lawyer Paul S. Turner, who died last year, has essays that reflect both nuts-and-bolts practical considerations and concerns about consumer protection in an opt-out world. The Review has all the papers on line here. You can get a good idea of what's in store from the Table of Contents:
