Overview

Taking a building-block approach, CONTRACT LAW FOR LEGAL PROFESSIONALS, 1/e covers the key topics and fundamental rules of contract law and shows how to apply them. Each chapter focuses on a specific topic, explains the law, illustrates the rules, reinforces the concepts and then lets students apply their knowledge. Cases present contracts issues and show how the courts resolved the issues by applying the rules. Focusing on mastering concepts, the book’s goal is to equip paralegals with the basic knowledge required to approach a contracts issue capably, assist the supervising attorney and know when to ask questions.

    Highly recommended

    I used Contract law for Legal Professionals to really learn contracts. It is a straight forward and amazing book. Very short, not a lot of fluff. You really learn the rules. My husband said that he wished he had it in law school to learn contracts. This book is so well written.
