This article begins with a comparison of UCITA and UCC Article 2 and shows how much less restraint the drafters had while drafting the UCITA in early 1995. It was during this time that UCC Article 2 was still undergoing revision. This article continues with the author's detailed examination of the underlying major structural and policy defects in UCITA that require the drafters' attention before it is made into law.

The author defines the scope of UCITA as being too broad. Furthermore, the author deconstructs and criticizes various sections of UCITA.
