The cases appearing in this volume have been selected primarily for the use of students pursuing the study of Negotiable Instruments and particularly for students in the Law Department of the University of Michigan. They are arranged in order to conform to the plan of instruction now pursued in that Department. The plan to which reference is made is sufficiently indicated by the Table of Contents infra. In brief, it involves a study of the law of Negotiable Instruments on the basis of the contract of the several parties as that law has been declared by the courts and, incidentally only, a study of the "Negotiable Instruments Law." The cases will be found to illustrate the several phases of the negotiable contract and to be arranged ... in such an order as to show, in sequence, the liability and rights of parties to Negotiable Instruments.
