The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy marks the first time in the history of legal education that a novel has been used as a vehicle for delivering the content of a substantive body of law; in this case, a pervasive statutory scheme The Uniform Commercial Code, law in all fifty states. Mirroring the factual assumptions upon which the UCC was drafted, The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy places the application of these laws in concrete and interesting commercial settings where they come to life. Logical reader questions are anticipated, and answered through a variety of communication channels uniquely available to the format chosen: dialogue, memoranda of law, texting and emails, are illustrative. If you are in business, the Uniform Commercial Code directly, impacts your business hundreds, perhaps thousands of times per day. Virtually every phase of a transaction in goods, from sale or lease through financing, is impacted by the laws of the UCC. Of particular significance are those provisions which can literally save a business from going under. These potential landmines need to be identified before they are stepped on. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy accomplishes this important task. Consumers should understand the basic laws the surround and govern their purchases leases and financing of goods. They should also understand, as should businesses, the impact of signing a promissory note, how the transfer of that note can affect one 's rights, and how to protect one 's rights when promissory notes are executed. Understanding how to protect your rights in these transactions is both empowering and essential. The mass and complexity of the Uniform Commercial Code has made comprehension and learning the content very challenging. The ease of learning is greatly enhanced by the approach utilized in The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy. As one prominent attorney and author wrote in a recently published book review: Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus! In this case, he comes in the form of former University of Miami School of Law professor Robert M. LeVine, who has made one of the most complicated bodies of law in the United States the Uniform Commercial Code not only comprehensible but entertaining. Tom Shuck, Esq. Past President, Federal Bar Association Federal Bar Association Journal, August 2111 Law students, business students, and CPA 's must know the Uniform Commercial Code. It is essential to graduate from law school and is on the bar examination of every state, and the CPA examination as well. The following are illustrative of testimonials received on The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy: It 's true. The UCC is just as daunting as it looks, and this book is the key to unlocking its mysteries. Infused with practicality, The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy combines every day transactions with straightforward law, allowing students to not only navigate the UCC with ease, but also develop a lasting understanding of the material. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy 's revolutionary approach to the UCC has extensive application both in and out of the classroom as a resource for professors and a study aid for students. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy by LeVine was my key to success in understanding the UCC, and enjoying it! Melissa Carroll Stetson University College of Law I was amazed. I never thought it possible to make the UCC interesting but I was wrong. For once I had found a book which made me understand the meaning and interrelationships among sections, and at the same time, I enjoyed reading it. F. William Harvey JD, MBA, Wharton School of Business The knowledge contained in the Uniform Commercial Code is invaluable to anyone in business, or any American who is involved in basic consumer transactions. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy creates a pathway to this level in a unique and entertaining manner.

"Without Prejudice" UCC 1-207 means "that which is so clearly stated or distinctly set forth that there is no doubt as to its meaning." Negotiable Instrument Law UCC 3-104.2 states that a summons, license, or draft must' be signed "unconditionally." A reservation of Without Prejudice places a condition on the agreement which means I do not partake', the unit is now non-assumpsit. These units are "unconscionable" at UCC 2-302. The Constitution of these united States is alive and firmly within God's plan. IRS and Patriot Act are of foreign Law to the domicile Citizen of each separate state. Agency is the authorized representative of Congress who requires subjects' sign negotiable instruments and license. Department of Justice executes' agency police power per contracted enlistment to Maritime Jurisdiction. We Thee People are not "subject to the jurisdiction of the United States." This book will prove "the fact of the matter stated" and share with each Citizen; Truth of entitlement' to "privileges and immunities" of the Bill of Rights. Agency has proliferated by using fraudulent devise and elliptical words of art' to confuse the People into believing in false teaching for inferior' benefit. By reserving Rights a Citizen remains In Propria Persona at signature and the unit is void of promise' at UCC 3-104.3.
