This new, primarily problem-based text comprehensively covers the concepts and intricacies of negotiable instruments, while also providing substantial analysis and materials regarding the bank-customer relationship and alternative payments systems, including credit cards and electronic funds transfers. The authors are both award-winning teachers who believe that the course should train students to read and interpret statutes, to recognize relevant facts, and to apply the statutory rules to such facts in ways that demonstrate the students' sensitivity to ambiguities in the rules and in the facts. Consequently, the text provides a plentiful supply of carefully crafted problems designed to enable students to develop these skills while mastering the substance of negotiable instruments law. The accompanying Teacher's Manual (available only to professors) gives clear answers to each of the problems and offers many helpful pedagogic suggestions. The text is fully current and examines the important issues raised by recent revisions to the UCC. In addition, the text contains several extremely valuable and user-friendly appendices, including a full glossary, which should make it largely unnecessary for an instructor to recommend any non-statutory supplements. Professors and adjunct professors may request complimentary examination copies of LexisNexis law school publications to consider for class adoption or recommendation. Please identify the book(s) you wish to receive, provide your institutional contact information, and submit your request here. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Examining the legal history of the order to pay money initiating a funds transfer, the author tracks basic principles of modern law to those that governed the payment order of Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Exploring the legal nature of the payment order and its underpinning in light of contemporary institutions and payment mechanisms, the book traces the evolution of money, payment mechanisms and the law that governs them, from developments in Ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient Greece, Rome, and Greco-Roman Egypt, through medieval Europe and post-medieval England. Doctrine is examined in Jewish, Islamic, Roman, common and civil laws. Investigating such diverse legal systems and doctrines at the intersection of laws governing bank deposits, obligations, the assignment of debts, and negotiable instruments, the author identifies the common denominator for the evolving legal principles and speculates on possible reciprocity. At the same time he challenges the idea of 'law merchant' as a mercantile creation. The book provides an account of the evolution of payment law as a distinct cohesive body of legal doctrine applicable to funds transfers. It shows how principles of law developed in tandem with the evolution of banking and in response to changing circumstances and proposes a redefinition of 'law merchant'. The author points to deposit banking and emerging technologies as embodying a great potential for future non-cash payment system growth. However, he recommends caution in predicting both the future of deposit banking and the overall impact of technology. At the same time he expresses confidence in the durability of legal doctrine to continue to evolve and accommodate future payment system developments.
