And I thought Torts was bad

June 1, 2008

Commercial paper is the first subject I’ve encountered where I honestly don’t understand half the words I’m reading. Reading the outline is like reading a overwritten contract, and it makes my head hurt to try and decipher what the hell is going on.

I think it’s probably a good thing it’s only an essay subject, but no less terrifying because of it.

    The UCC sections for commercial paper are actually pretty well-written, if you can stomach the reading…

    Did you say what bar exam you’re taking? Commercial Paper is very rarely tested, and can usually be picked up with some practice essay question drills from the [State] Testing book. As an aside and horror story, Commerical Paper was an entire question on the New York Bar last summer – I think I did ok on it (because of the aforementioned essays), but lots of people just put down the mnuemonics associated with it and passed anyway. 🙂

    Phew… it’s not just me! I read the commercial paper outline last night, and I thought… sh*t. I *knew* I should have taken Commercial Paper and Secured Transactions!!

    If you want some relief, read Suretyship… 8 pages, and it couldn’t be more straightforward.
