This course covers the "sale of goods," as addressed by the Uniform Commercial Code, Article 2, and closely related subjects. The "Uniform Commercial Code" is a statutory system of commercial law which has been adopted, in substance, in virtually all American jurisdictions. The topics covered include the formation and modification of sales contracts, buyers' and sellers' remedies, express and implied warranty issues, general "risk of loss" issues, and established principles of common law which may apply, even in the context of a code based system. The general practice of civil law, even for one who is not a commercial "specialist," often requires counsel to have a basic knowledge of the law of "sales" in order to properly advise one's clients.
