Mastering Negotiable Instruments (UCC Articles 3 and 4) and Other Payment Systems explains the essential concepts in the law governing payment systems. The book focuses primarily on the prototypical payment systems that for centuries have used negotiable instruments: notes, checks, and other types of drafts. It explores the rules and mechanisms that regulate transactions in negotiable instruments from issue to collection. Study of the rules starts with UCC Article 3 (governing negotiable instruments generally) and Article 4 (governing check collection), but also requires consideration of federal statutes such as the Expedited Funds Availability Act, the new Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act, and related federal regulations. The book also explores the largely federal law governing newer payment systems that have evolved from negotiable instruments, such as credit cards and debit cards.

“I am a 2L at Rutgers School of Law and this has been an invaluable guide as I prepare for my Intro to UCC final exam. After reading numerous outlines and guides, this has been the most straightforward and concise book I have ever read. Thank you again for an excellent, well laid out guide.” — Josh Bandes

“Over the years, I have practiced in the bankruptcy and commercial litigation areas. In late 2009, I decided to become involved in foreclosure defense work. It soon became apparent that I needed a refresher course in Articles 3 and 4 of the UCC. I was lucky to find Professor Floyd's book entitled, 'Mastering Negotiable Instruments' published by Carolina Academic Press. Professor Floyd's treatment of the subject matter is thorough, but at the same time, readable and understandable. Each chapter begins with a roadmap of subjects to be discussed and ends with a checklist which summarizes the main points. I still refer to the book frequently to confirm my research. After reading the book, I may not have been ready to teach a course on negotiable instruments, but I was certainly able to hold my own in court.” — Kevin Hanly, Esq.
