Tribal Courts and Secured Transactions Law
Date: May 8 - 9, 2013
Location: TBD in Minneapolis, Minnesota
The U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Indian Affairs, Office of Justice Services/Tribal Justice Support and Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development, in partnership with the Federal Reserve
Banks of Minneapolis, San Francisco and Kansas City present legal training workshops on the subject of secured transactions law that are specifically designed for tribal judges and tribal attorneys,
as well those engaged in contracting and business development.
Increasing numbers of Tribes and their members are regularly engaging in commercial transactions, and Tribes are responding by enacting commercial laws to help build the legal infrastructure that will help
support sound business development. One very important commercial law addresses secured transactions, a key component of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). This comprehensive two-day workshop
will focus primarily on the provisions of the Model Tribal Secured Transactions Act, which has been enacted by many tribes.
The workshop will offer instruction on the basics of secured transactions law, including the use of such personal property as inventory, equipment, receivables, and consumer goods as collateral for extensions of credit.
Advanced Registration is Required
