The goal of this lesson is to take the user systematically through UCC Article 2. The lesson accomplishes this goal by having the user study a contract for the sale of goods. The concepts of Article 2 are thereby seen in the practical setting in which they are applied. Conversely, study of the contract reveals the source of each of the included provisions in the law. The user becomes familiar with the default rules and how those rules might be changed on behalf of a client. The user finishes with knowledge of the Code and how the Code may be applied in practice when drafting a contract.
On completion of the lesson, the student will be able to:
1. Explain the concept of "default rules."
2. Determine whether a particular contract term represents the default rule or has been changed by the parties.
3. Recognize a Code section when it is exemplified in a contract
4. Evaluate the language used to express a term in a contract.
