Course Description

Commercial law courses in Canada are generally devoted to an examination of the principles and policies that govern the law of secured transactions in personal property. This commercial law course offers such an examination and is informed by a focus on systems, strategy and realism. The reality of commercial law is where the truly interesting intellectual questions arise: How does the system work? How do the day-to-day practices of lawyers in the system relate to the law on the books? If we change some aspect of the system, how does it affect the remainder? Who is helped and who is hurt by a particular rule? In what ways are outcomes subject to manipulation through strategy? How often do such manipulations occur? What ethical problems arise for lawyers in a lending system based on interests in collateral? This course will be taught with highly interactive lectures, a number of invited guests and discussion/presentation opportunities.
