Commercial Transactions Research Guide: Uniform Commercial Code

Where to Begin: Legal Treatises

When researching an unfamiliar area of law, it is best to start your research with a secondary source such as a specialized legal treatise. In additional to introducing the researcher to the terminology and legal concepts of a specific area of law, secondary sources save the researcher time by pointing out and discussing the important cases, statutes and regulations that shape and govern that area of law.

Best search phrases to use in the UNM Law Library Catalog:

  • Uniform Commercial Code
  • Commercial law--United States
  • Sales--United States

Browsing the UNM Law Library's collection is another good strategy. Browse the call number range KF 870 thru KF 915 for UCC-related titles in the Upper Floor Law Reference/Treatises collection and the Academic Support collection.

Multiple useful treatises are highlighted in this guide to speed your research.
