About the Book
Using a balanced mix of classic and contemporary cases, accompanied by engaging contextual material, Contracts: Cases and Doctrine, Fourth Edition, successfully employs a clear, back-to-basics approach to teaching contracts.
The fourth edition of this established casebook adds new cases and background material while preserving what has made it so popular:
- first-year students the opportunity to develop case-analysis skills by presenting cases that have been only lightly edited
- a flexible organization that is easily adaptable to different teaching styles and preferences. The casebook begins with remedies, but chapters are self contained and can be taught in any order.
- a studied mixture of classic and contemporary cases that adds interest and presents the possibility for different teaching alternatives
- a student-friendly structure: each chapter begins with a brief textual introduction, and each case is proceeded by Study Guide Questions that help students focus on the salient issues.
- more background information about the famous cases than in any other casebook
- an unusually detailed Teacherís Manual, with Transition Guide and Sample Syllabi
Be sure to examine a complimentary copy of the fourth edition of this popular and accessible casebook before you teach your next contracts course.
