Fastcase’s Full Court Press Publishes Guide to Secured Transactions in California Real Property

Spring is here, and the Full Court Press line-up of expert treatises and desk guides continues to grow. Part of the Full Court Press mission is to publish legal reference books that are streamlined, practical, and authored by leading experts. To that end, we’re excited to publish a new title by Dan S. Schechter detailing a unique method for handling secured transactions in California real property.


Mapping the Deal unveils a technique that has helped untangle and demystify the complexities of secured finance transactions for hundreds of attorneys and jurors, and thousands of law students. Published for the first time by Full Court Press, Mapping the Deal imparts Schechter’s teaching method to a wider audience of practicing attorneys throughout California.


Like all Full Court Press titles, Mapping the Deal is available in both Fastcase and print at a bundled price. PDF and eBook digital download versions are also available. To learn more and download a free sample chapter visit this link.


Schechter has spent his over 40-year legal and academic career focused on commercial finance and corporate insolvency, serving as a member of the California State Bar (now California Lawyers Association) Insolvency Law Committee, and teaching as a Professor in Residence at Loyola Law School, Los Angeles. He has helped draft legislation in California to protect homeowners from deficiency liability after the refinancing of purchase money transactions, and, in the Federal sphere, was the Legislative Reporter for the Bankruptcy Foreclosure Fraud Task Force for California’s Central District.


In addition to publishing with Full Court Press, Schechter is the co-author of California Real Estate Finance (Carolina Academic Press) and the ongoing Commercial Finance Newsletter, published weekly by Westlaw. We are excited to welcome Prof. Schechter’s groundbreaking work to the Fastcase family of research materials!
