Professor Henning appointed to committee studying the Uniform Commercial Code and emerging technologies

Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Apr 23, 2019 1:11:47 PM
Texas A&M University School of Law Professor Bill Henning has been appointed by the President of the Uniform Law Commission (ULC) to serve as a member of a newly formed ULC and ALI Joint Study Committee on the Uniform Commercial Code and Emerging Technologies. The study resulted from a recommendation to the ULC and the American Law Institute (ALI), the two organizations that sponsor the UCC, from the Permanent Editorial Board for the UCC, on which Professor Henning also serves. Professor Henning is a Life Member of the ULC and a member of the ALI.

It has become apparent in recent years that emerged and emerging technological developments, including developments in distributed ledger technology (e.g., blockchain), have created the potential for commercial transactions that are not adequately addressed by the current Official Text of the UCC. In addition, a market need has developed for negotiable electronic promissory notes under Article 3 of the UCC, which as of now requires that negotiable instruments be set out in a physical writing. The Joint Study Committee will examine these and possibly other issues and recommend whether amendments to the UCC should be drafted.

Students participating in the the Texas A&M University School of Law Immigrant Rights Clinic won protection under the Convention Against Torture for a client from Somalia last week. The court found a greater than 50 percent chance of future torture with government acquiescence. This is an extremely difficult type of case to win, according to TAMU Law Professor and Director of the Immigrants Rights Clinic Fatma Marouf. Nationwide, only 1.8 percent of applications under the Convention Against Torture were granted in 2017.
