MBA co-sponsors program: Uniform Commercial Code Conference

The Center for Business Law will host leading authorities from the United States, Canada and Ireland to address current issues in international sales and financing at the Uniform Commercial Code Conference. When goods are sold across borders, what laws apply if parties fail to choose? What are the choices? How do these choices affect warranties, disclaimers, remedies and dispute resolution?

Panelists will also discuss laws governing financing across borders, addressing security interests, problems of enforcement and how to avoid pitfalls. Bar members, academics and interested law students are invited to participate.
