Overview

Examples & Explanations: Remedies will be a new student favorite with its tried-and-true E&E format. This problem-oriented guide is designed and organized to complement any major remedies casebook and build student comprehension in a carefully constructed, step-by-step approach. It explains remedies policies and rules, and uses examples to show how lawyers and judges apply the rules to formulate concrete solutions to disputes.

Offering a logical and guided format, this valuable supplemental source for your students:

• covers the areas included in most remedies courses, including damages, injunctions, and restitution, as well as other important topics such as declaratory judgments, punitive damages, and remedial defenses
• builds student understanding step-by-step, moving from the basics to the more complex and allowing students to apply the law to particular fact patterns
• allows students to study chapters in any order
• demystifies the language of remedies using straightforward and student-friendly examples, charts, and illustrations
• shows students how to "do the math" related to issues such as computing compensatory damages, present value, and constructive trusts
• offers compatibility with all major remedies books, including those that approach remedies through public law and those that approach it through private law
• remains the only book in the field to provide both black letter law and examples and answers to build student knowledge; the level of complexity builds as examples continue in each chapter
• discusses major remedies cases (Hadley v. Baxendale; State Farm v. Campbell; Sullivan v. O'Connor), provides detailed coverage of the draft Restatement (Third) of Restitution, and gives detailed analyses of remedies issues under Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code
