Survey Article


Last year's article limited its coverage to cases interpreting provisions of Georgia's Commercial Code. Although the courts have provided ample material to again dedicate the entire survey to that topic, to do so would ignore other substantive bodies of law that have had a significant impact on a commercial law practice. Therefore, in addition to a review of the standard Commercial Code topics (sales, negotiable instruments and bank collections, and secured transactions), this year's survey has endeavored to summarize case law and legislative enactments within the past year in the following categories: banking and finance, consumer protection, contracts of employment, contract drafting considerations, and promissory notes. Hopefully, the effort to include additional subjects has not unduly sacrificed the more comprehensive coverage that fewer topics would allow.
