In-Depth Analysis of Commercial Law, UCC, and Bankruptcy at Commercial Lending Today

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - March 11, 2014) - American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education (ALI CLE) is pleased to announce its upcoming program, Commercial Lending Today, that will take place on May 1-2 at the Chicago Marriott in Chicago, IL.

Commercial law practitioners can stay up-to-date on all the critical developments in commercial lending with this continuing legal education program that will address the latest information on the concurrent legislative and case-law changes in this ever-evolving field. The two-day program will examine such trending topics as the recent revisions to UCC Article 9, intercreditor agreements, proposed revisions to the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act, bankruptcy and other insolvency proceedings, collateral control, and cross border and foreign law issues in secured transactions.

"Ongoing developments in insolvency and workout issues are having a profound effect on lending, borrowing and other financial services," says co-planning chair Patrick Guida, of Duffy & Sweeney, Ltd., in Providence, Rhode Island. Guida and his fellow planning chair Harry C. Sigman of Los Angeles, California, have assembled a notable collection of high-profile practitioners, consultants, academics, and a District Court judge. These experts have unparalleled experience in developing and drafting the new laws and in guiding major banks and other lenders through some of the most compelling transactions and controversies in the industry. Panelists include Reporters and members of the Drafting Committees for various recent revisions and amendments of the UCC, Uniform Law Commissioners, as well as others who have contributed substantially to the drafting process.

This year's program also features a special guest lecture on saving clauses by Professor Douglas G. Baird, specialist in contracts and secured transactions, and Professor of Law at University of Chicago Law School.

Hosted in downtown Chicago, Commercial Lending Today offers course materials that are tied closely to the realities of practice, ample networking opportunities, and more than 12 hours of CLE instruction, including at least one hour of ethics, and up to 14.5 CPE hours in Business.
