Security for debt obligations and contract performance remain a cornerstone of any commercial transaction, domestic or international. Through a comparison of U.S. and Chinese Law, this course surveys the law of third-party performance guarantees (surety bonds), security interests, statutory liens, and letters of credit. Emphasis is placed on training students how to perfect creditor interests in, and dealing with competing creditor claims to, pledged assets. Students will also be introduced to China’s efforts to increase access to credit for small and medium enterprises and the broader Chinese citizenry.
