MBA to co-sponsor 'Remedies under the Uniform Commercial Code' conference

Issue September 2015 By Professor L. Gary Monserud

On Oct. 1, 2015, the New England Law | Boston's Business Law Center will host a conference on "Remedies under the Uniform Commercial Code." This event will take place at 154 Stuart St. in Boston and will run from 12:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. This is the fourth annual conference devoted to the exploration of current issues in commercial law. The conference will be co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Bar Association and the Uniform Commercial Code - Digest.

The panelists will address issues arising under Articles 2, 2A, 3, 5 and 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code with a heavy focus on remedies. All of the speakers will be practitioners or professors highly regarded for their expertise in code-related matters. Panelists include Edwin Smith, long-time Uniform Laws Commissioner for Massachusetts, and Bill Henning, who has long served as a commissioner and is now executive professor of law, Texas A&M University School of Law. Moderators will be Ingrid Hillinger, a professor from Boston College Law School, and Frank Morrissey, who also serves an adjunct professor at New England Law | Boston. Anyone whose practice or academic interest in any way involves the code will find this conference interesting and rewarding.

There is no cost to attend, but the Business Law Center does encourage early registration to assist us in making final plans for the conference.
