The sale of goods is one of the most important forms of commercial transactions.  The sales contracts governing these transactions can be quite complex and they must all comply with the Uniform Commercial Code Article 2 to be valid and enforceable.  The UCC governs contract formation, express and implied warranties, defines breach of contract and provides remedies.  Compliance with its extensive provisions ensures enforceability of the contract and comparatively expeditious remedies for breach.  However, when its many requirements are overlooked, contracts for sale of goods may be invalid and the underlying transaction void.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to drafting and reviewing contracts for the sale of goods with an emphasis on UCC Article 2 compliance.
