Chapter 24 The Function and Creation of Negotiable Instruments    See Separate Lecture Outline System I NTRODUCTION Because the holder of a negotiable instrument may enjoy greater rights than the holder of a nonnegotiable instrument, it is important for your students to understand the distinctions between these types of instruments. A negotiable instrument has two functions—as a substitute for money and as a credit device.  To fulfill these functions, an instrument must be easily transferable and collectible. This chapter examines the essential fea- tures of various instruments that qualify as negotiable and the roles and responsibilities of the parties who cre- ate these instruments.  Also, this chapter discusses the requirements for a negotiable instrument, and some of the omissions and terms that do not affect an instrument’s negotiability.
