Section 001, Payments ("Horror Stories and Mysteries That Lurk Behind Every Payment You Make") - Cohen, Adrian
Course Page for Spring 2017 - Cohen, Adrian
Payments is the study of the rules and the processes through which payments and commercial paper of all kinds (checks [both paper and electronic], electronic funds transfers, promissory notes, letters of credit, etc.) move through the U.S. finance system. The course covers topics that practitioners, consumers and businesses deal with nearly every day--the kinds of topics that you are guaranteed to be asked questions about once people learn you are a lawyer. The approach to the course will be to simplify the commercial transactions and statutory language so those new to the topic feel comfortable dealing with this area of the law.
