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. Key Features of the New Edition: The seventh edition begins with a new chapter containing an expanded introduction to the study of contracts law. Every chapter now includes new introductory material All chapters, with the exception of chapter one, end with an “Assessment” section, which consists of multiple choice questions and answers, designed to help the students review the material just learned.

Buy a new version of this Connected Casebook and receive access to the online e-book, practice questions from your favorite study aids, and an outline tool on CasebookConnect, the all in one learning solution for law school students. CasebookConnect offers you what you need most to be successful in your law school classes—portability, meaningful feedback, and greater efficiency. Cases, Problems, and Materials on Contracts is known for pioneering the problem method of law school teaching. A staple in classrooms for decades, it stands out from other texts in the scope of its coverage and its use of short, carefully-constructed Problems to expose students to new concepts, reinforce what they have just learned, and stimulate thought. The Eighth Edition, the first since the passing of Thomas Crandall and the addition of David Horton as co-author, is more accessible than ever. It introduces complicated issues with a clear narrative summary or explicit statement of black-letter law. The cases have been tightly edited for best effect. The book can also be easily adapted to fit various pedagogical needs. Although it starts with “Agreement” and moves to “Consideration,” it is also designed for teachers who prefer to begin with “Consideration” or “Remedies.” It can be used in courses that both include and exclude sales. Finally, because it is shorter than most other texts in this field, it works in 4-unit, 5-unit, and 6-unit courses. New to the Eighth Edition: Substantial input from a new co-author means that the book contains scores of new cases, Problems, and narrative introductions to issues. Each opinion has been streamlined to enhance readability. Where possible, applicable Restatement of Contracts and Uniform Commercial Code sections have been printed in the text, saving students the cost of buying separate supplements. Professors and students will benefit from: Coverage of the basics of Contracts Law in a format that allows greater exposure to the legal concepts through the many Problems that fill each chapter alongside the most illustrative cases on point Assessment multiple-choice questions at the end of each chapter that are meatier than such questions in most books, focusing not on the “right answer” so much as on what real attorneys must consider when confronted with the issues presented The entire book’s approach not just to teach rules of law but to train students to be lawyers faced with commercial issues. For example, Problems sometimes ask students whether they would be committing malpractice if they took a certain course of conduct, an issue very much on the mind of actual attorneys but seldom mentioned in law school classrooms.
