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.

"This anthology effectively destroys the widely held belief that the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is a sterile and lifeless maze. Whereas most teaching and scholarship on the UCC has concerned itself with narrow issues surrounding one or more provisions, this book tackles the wider topics that make the UCC a living, experimental, and sometimes controversial text.The book begins with a treatment of the codification movement from which the UCC project was born and then turns to the history and drafting of the UCC, including selections from its principal drafters. Litowitz then raises pointed questions about the jurisprudence and interpretation of the UCC, including challenges from critics. After discussing often-neglected issues surrounding the social and political implications of the UCC, the discussion turns to currently pressing problems such as the amendment process and the arguments surrounding federalization. Students and professors alike will find the anthology a wonderful complement to the standard materials assigned in commercial law classes, facilitating a broader scholarly discussion of the UCC."
