Overview

"Essentials of Contract Law" presents the study of the law of contracts in an organized fashion via a "road map" for thinking about contracts problems. Through the road map concept, students learn about contract formation, determining the applicable law, unenforceable contracts and breach of contract. The text cuts through excess verbiage and outdated doctrine, ensuring that students gain a solid understanding of the material. The rules of law are developed through presentation of theory, followed by an example and a paralegal exercise. Each chapter develops the next step in the road map so the text is methodical and cohesive. Students are also taught how to analyze a contract problem using a common law and code.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
For paralegal students, this text provides a functional approach to the law of contracts. To make the law more clear, the text sets out a "road map" for analyzing breach-of-contract causes of action in which students answer five questions: What law applies to this transaction? Has a contract been formed? Is the contract enforceable? Has the contract been breached? What remedies are available? The text also explores third-party interests in the contract. Martin Frey teaches law at the U. of Oklahoma, and Phyllis Hurley Frey is in private practice. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
