MBA co-sponsors Uniform Commercial Code Conference at New England Law | Boston on Feb. 16

Is the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) meeting today's finance and technology needs? Is the code exploding or imploding? The Massachusetts Bar Association is proud to co-sponsor, with New England Law | Boston's Center for Business Law, a Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Conference, which will feature leading national authorities on current issues bearing upon the scope of the UCC's article 2 (sales) and the application of article 9 (secured transactions). The panelists will discuss related bodies of law, including the American Law Institute's Principles of the Law of Software Contracts.

The article 2 panel, beginning at 1 p.m., will discuss attempts to revise article 2, contracts for the development and transfer of software, bankruptcy claims and defining electricity as a "good."   

The article 9 panel, beginning at 3:15 p.m., will discuss recent amendments to article 9, recent commentary issued by the Permanent Editorial Board for the Uniform Commercial Code and the intersection of articles 9 and 3 with real property law pertaining to foreclosures.

"This conference will bring together students, academics, and practitioners to explore current issues about the scope of the code," MBA Business Law Section Council Chair Francis C. Morrissey said. "Both new practitioners as well as seasoned lawyers with extensive experience with the UCC will find the conference extremely valuable."

Registration is requested by Monday, Feb. 6 by e-mailing abigail.p.adams or calling (617) 455-5705. Please include your name, affiliation, phone number and e-mail address.
