Rabbi Elefant brings the Meforshim who tell us the importance of learning Bava Metzia(seder Nezikin) thats what they learned in Rebbi Yehudah time during a famine but we learn all of Shas so we see from here learning Seder Nezikin is a zechus against tzaros. Rabbi Elefant also says learn halachoa every day and you get olam haba is referring to seder Nezikin choshen mishpat which is very relevant a key to our success. Rabbi Elefant brings the S"T Mishna Halachos who asks when you have a number of people wanting to buy a certain article based on our gemara the seller decides who he wants to sell it to. Rabbi Rosner brings the Shiurei Mitzuanim Bhalacha who asks how many masechtas are there in Shas and goes through the sources its either 60 61 or 63 it depends if the Bavas are 1 masechta like the Rambam says.

Bava Metzia was the middle section of tractate Nezikin, and from this placement it derived its name, which means the middle gate. The remaining part of this super-tractate was divided into Bava Kamma, the first gate, which precedes Bava Metzia, and Bava Batra, the last gate. Each of these three parts has its own central topic. Bava Metzia deals with issues relating to business, specifically those that the Torah mentions explicitly. The topics discussed in this tractate include the halakhot of lost and found items, the loading and unloading of animals, verbal mistreatment, exploitation, charging interest, feeding workers, depositing and borrowing items, withholding wages, and the prohibition against damaging collateral. Bava Metzia expresses one of the unique aspects of Torah law, namely, that it does not distinguish between civil law and ritual law. Jewish civil law is based not on a social contract but on requirements defined by Torah law and rabbinic law. Accordingly, interpersonal relationships and civil laws are viewed as part of the relationship between the Jewish people and God. Although there are certain distinctions made by the Torah between civil and ritual law, in general they are interwoven in the Torah text, as can be seen, for example, in Exodus, chapters 21–23; Leviticus, chapter 19; and Deuteronomy, chapters 21–25.(From Koren)Also available as a pdf.Artscroll app now has hebrew Bava Metzia and the Artscoll Tanach can now link to your gemaras.
