Clearly written and following a traditional organization, Contracts: Cases, Discussion, and Problems, Second Edition, offers a direct and accessible approach to contract law that engages students and prepares them for the critical thinking and rigorous analysis the law demands. In this new edition the authors have updated, expanded, and fine tuned the text without compromising their concise and effective presentation.

The strengths of this casebook include:

  • clear, straightforward text that illuminates cases, concepts, theory, questions, and problems
  • carefully edited modern, engaging cases as well as classic older cases, which the authors adroitly place in context
  • insightful questions that help prompt class discussion by drawing students’ attention to difficult or crucial aspects of the law
  • manageable problems that supplement the cases or introduce topics taught most effectively through problems
  • traditional organization that begins with formation and proceeds through the sequence followed by the Restatement of Contracts and the Restatement (2nd) of Contracts
  • concise, efficient presentation that keeps the length under control
  • comprehensive Teacher’s Manual

New to the Second Edition:

  • increased emphasis on transactional skills and perspectives related to drafting, client counseling, and negotiation
  • new international and comparative material throughout the book—drawing on the approaches taken by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts—to help make students aware of alternative approaches
  • new cases, discussion, and problems involving issues that arise from the expanding use of technology in the formation and performance of contracts
  • emphasis on the revised versions of UCC Articles 1 and 2, comparing them to the prerevision versions and explaining changes or noting the lack of change
  • the revamped Chapter 6, Contract Formation: Standard Terms and Electronic Media, fully revises the treatment of UCC §2-207 and adds materials on offer and acceptance through electronic media and in standard contracts, emphasizing the treatment of post-contractual terms

Contracts: Cases, Discussion, and Problems, Second Edition, teaches contract law using an established, traditional organization while offering comprehensive coverage of the issues that must be confronted in modern practice today.
