From the Editor...

The Internet has brought faster communication and dissemination of information; that is standard stuff. In the world of commercial law (loosely anything having to do with money, from the UCC to banking to bankruptcy), that information has value and the speed of its transmission has caused all sorts of rethinking of basic transactions. Indeed, the bankruptcy court for the Southern District of New York has been a pioneer in facilitating electronic filing, and electronic access to court files. It may be a harbinger of things to come.

Take a look at these sites for ways lawyers help their clients finance the world, and the way academics and other comment on it.
