Product Description

This Modern Payment Systems hornbook constitutes a current discussion of the law governing promissory notes, drafts, and other means of payment, except for cash. Subjects covered include methods of payment and evidences of debt, negotiable instruments, defenses to and discharge of liability, Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Articles 4 and 4A, and non-UCC payment systems. This book discusses the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.) Articles 3, 4, and 4A in detail. It also explains to what extent provisions and interpretive cases decided prior to the promulgation of Article 4A and prior to the 1990 revision of Articles 3 and 4 are still useful, and why changes made were needed. It discusses issues not generally recognized and treated elsewhere, including the meaning of the new standard of good faith, the relation between "accountability" and "final payment," and consequences of radical truncation.
