This session builds upon the fundamental course in purchasing law. This course reviews requirements or obligations under UCC Sales Contracts, including performance obligations of the buyer and seller and remedies for breach of contract. Also covered are statutes relating to Government Regulation of the Purchasing Function including an overview Intellectual Property (trade secrets, patents, copyrights), Federal Statutes affecting purchasing (Sherman Antitrust Act, FTC Act, Robinson-Patman Act, Bankruptcy), and a brief review of federal Environmental Laws which may affect purchasing decisions. In addition, there are several types of dispute resolution processes, which are briefly discussed: litigation, mediation, and arbitration.
