Sales of Goods

Sales of Goods

In this course, we will study Articles 2 and 2A of the Uniform Commercial Code, which cover the sale and leases of goods. In your contracts class, you have already looked at some of the sections governing warranties and contract formation. We will expand on these topics and look at such questions as the obligations of the seller and the buyer, remedies, anticipatory breach, conditions, and the parol evidence rule. In addition, we will consider the CISG (the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods), which can override the UCC as adopted by U.S. states. The focus of this course will be practical and problem-based. Class-time will be spent applying the UCC provisions and interpreting caselaw to specific fact patterns. There will be graded written problems or drafting exercises throughout the semester in addition to a final exam.
