First Four Assignments for Sales under the UCC. Professor

First Four Assignments for Sales under the UCC.
Professor Monserud
You will need Whaley and McJohn, Cases and Materials on
Commercial Law (10th ed) and a current Code that includes Articles 1, 2,
2A, 3, 4, 5, and 7. It must also have the Convention on Contracts for the
International Sales of Goods, though international sales are a very small
part of this course. Inside Sales and Leases by Hull is recommended; it
can be helpful but is not essential. In the assignments following, all
references are to the Official Uniform Commercial Code and to Whaley
and McJohn. The class meets in Room 301 from 1:30 - 2:45 on
Wednesdays and Fridays.
Session 1 - August 21: Topic - the scope of Article 2. Whaley and
McJohn, 3-24. UCC: 1-103(b), skim 2-101 through 2-107 and 2-304.
Study carefully 2-102 and 2-105(1) and the accompanying comments.

Article 2A and the scope of the CISG. UCC: 2-104(1), 2A103(1)(h)(j)(k)(i)(l)(n)(p)(q) and CISG Articles 1 - 6. Read also
