Oregon State Bar Bulletin — FEBRUARY/MARCH 2014

Reimagining the UCC in Your Practice: A Groundbreaking Approach to Interpreting the UCC

Friday, May 2
Oregon State Bar Center
Time and MCLE credits pending

How do you take one of the most complicated bodies of law in the U.S., the Uniform Commercial Code, and make it not only comprehensible but entertaining? Attending this seminar is a very good way to find out. The UCC governs virtually every phase of a transaction in goods, as well as payment systems used in these transactions and in commerce generally. Robert Levine, author of The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy, will provide participants with a solid working knowledge of the meaning of the text of the UCC. Develop an understanding of how the various articles of the UCC fit together. Gain key strategies for drafting documents and litigating matters within the scope of the code. Attorneys will come away from this seminar with a significant advantage at every phase of a transaction governed by the UCC, whether it is transactional, litigation or during the ongoing business process.
