About the Book

Cases, Problems, and Materials on Contracts is distinguished among other texts by its excellent organization and thorough coverage of the basic themes of contract law. The accessible, straightforward text begins with clear introduction to each section or concept. Carefully selected cases have been tightly edited for the best effect. Using an engaging problem-oriented approach, students learn contract doctrine by applying their knowledge to short, well-conceived hypotheticals. Offering a flexible organization, the book starts with “Offer and Acceptance” and moves on to “Consideration,” however, the book is designed so courses can easily start with “Consideration” or “Remedies.” Its flexibility allows for use in courses in which professors are required to teach sales, yet can also be adapted to avoid teaching the UCC. A manageable length accounts for the book being used in courses of 4, 5, and 6-hour length. The authors have worked closely on all chapters to deliver a seamless revision to this popular text.
