The problem approach featured in Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions thoroughly engages students with imaginative scenarios, presenting the material as easily accessible and as manageable as possible without avoiding the intricacies of secured transactions. Students come to appreciate that the principal resource for the course is UCC Article 9 itself. While the casebook is an essential tool for study, the law is found in the Code. Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions is carefully designed for an introductory mainstream course, not for an advanced course or seminar. The material is presented as completely comprehensible, even enjoyable rather than an arcane science than only an insider can understand. Cases are heavily edited, and liberal editorial note help express the vibrancy of true-life situations. A good mix of short and long problems gives each lesson a comprehensive linear flow while keeping students focused. A progressive mix of problems helps students see the common elements, as rules and principals learned in a simpler setting can readily be applied to more complex transactions. Earlier problems lean more heavily, though not exclusively, on the individual and consumer-borrower situations. As the lessons advance, the mix of materials progressively includes more small-business and large-business transactions.

Arbitration Law in America: A Critical Assessment is a source of arguments and practical suggestions for changing the American arbitration process. The book, first published in 2006, argues that the Federal Arbitration Act badly needs major changes. The authors, who have previously written major articles on arbitration law and policy, here set out their own views and argue among themselves about the necessary reforms of arbitration. The book contains draft legislation for use in international and domestic arbitration and a detailed explanation of the precise justifications for proposed legislative changes. It also contains two proposals that might be deemed radical - to ban arbitration related to the purchase of products by consumers and to prohibit arbitration of employment disputes. Each proposal is vetted fully and critiqued by one or more of the other co-authors.
