Overview

The organizational format, case selection, notes, questions, and problems in the first edition of this casebook proved extremely popular with first-year students. This revised second edition replaces some cases and adds new notes and problems designed to stimulate student discussion as well as update the text with new developments, including selected proposed changes in the Uniform Commercial Code and novel issues involving electronic information transfer. The authors continue to embrace an approach that invites students to bridge theory and practice in their exploration of contract law. To that end, the casebook's notes and problems address transactional and drafting considerations as well as law practice and litigation questions.

The eBook version of this title features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
