COMMERCIAL PAPER: DRAFTING SHORT-TERM NOTES TO FINANCE COMPANY OPERATIONS, 1 CLE hour
 

Promissory notes are among the most common forms of commercial paper used in business and commercial transactions.  They are used to finance transactions and fund operations. Their creation and exchange are also governed by UCC Article 3, which defines what constitutes an enforceable note and the rights and obligations of the parties to the note and on the exchange of the note.  Careful compliance with the Article 3 when drafting a note is necessary to ensure the benefit of the underlying bargain and preserve creditor rights.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to drafting promissory notes, a framework for understanding the rights and obligations of the parties to the transaction, and tips to avoid common enforceability traps.
