Chapter 20 The Formation of Sales and Lease Contracts See Separate Lecture Outline System I NTRODUCTION The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is probably the most important piece of commercial legislation in the history of the United States.  The drafters of the UCC comprised a sophisticated group of legal scholars— Karl Llewellyn, Grant Gilmore, Homer Kripke, and Soia Mentschikoff.  The UCC created a nearly uniform body of law in each state, greatly facilitating interstate commerce. Because of its nearly uniform applicability, your students may be confused about whether the UCC is a state or federal law.   As discussed in Chapter 1, the UCC was (and remains) a joint effort of the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws and the American Law Institute.  All its articles have been adopted with few changes by every state (except Louisiana, which has not adopted Articles 2 and 2A) and the District of Columbia.  Despite differences, the UCC contains many similarities to the common law contract principles discussed in the previous chapters.  Indeed, such similarities should be expected, because the UCC represents the codification of much of the common law of contracts. 127
