West Group published two important volumes on Illinois commercial law that were co-authored by Jenner & Block Partners Daniel R. Murray, Carter H. Klein, Andrew J. Olejnik and former partner Donald R. Cassling.

Uniform Commercial Code With Illinois Code Comments is Volume 2A of the Illinois Practice Series, which has been frequently cited by the federal as well as the Illinois state courts. This 2003 edition is the latest in a series of Illinois statutory annotations to the UCC that have been published by Jenner & Block attorneys, including Bert Jenner and William Davenport, dating back to the 1960s. And it continues to include insightful discussions of the statutory history of each section of the Illinois Uniform Commercial Code, as well as Illinois case law that has evolved under each section.

Also published by West as part of its prestigious Illinois Practice Series is Uniform Commercial Code Forms Annotated – Second Edition. The original text in this series was co-authored by Bill Davenport in 1967. Today, it contains almost 1,000 pages of model forms to be used by Illinois practitioners under Articles 8 and 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, as well as author’s comments on those forms.

Jenner & Block also is responsible for another volume in the Illinois Practice Series published by West, Illinois Civil Litigation Guide, which is co-authored by Partners Jerold S. Solovy, Robert L. Byman, Howard S. Suskin, Barry Levenstam, and Vincent E. Lazar.
