Federal Government Contracts

This casebook provides detailed information on federal government contracts. There are a great number of reasons for studying Government contracts. As far as this book is concerned, probably the most persuasive of these may be the light that is thrown on internal operations of the Government. This subject, which usually escapes the attention of legal scholars (and other scholars as well) deserves serious study and criticism if we are to continue to be a Government under law.Every year the federal government spends approximately $190 billion contracting for supplies, services, construction, and research and development. Those contracts cover everything from the mundane (pencils, chairs, etc.) to the nearly miraculous (stealth technology, space exploration, hydroelectric plants). That money cascades down from the government through virtually all of America's major corporations down to the smallest subcontractors. Moreover, many state and local governments emulate these principles w

Europäisches Vertragsrecht

Author: Hein Kötz

Publisher: Mohr Siebeck

ISBN: 9783161537677

Category: Law

English summary: This volume deals with the contract law of the European legal systems. What are the essential rules of these systems on the formation and validity of contracts? What rules apply to a party's right to bring a claim for performance, to terminate the contract or to claim damages for breach? While the discussion is based on the national rules, they are taken into account only as local variations on a European theme. To what extent is it therefore possible to speak of a common European law of contract? What contributions do the "Principles of European Contract Law" and the proposal of the "Draft Common Frame of Reference" make? This book is not only aimed at helping to teach young Europeans lawyers, but also strives to assist those engaged in the reform of national contract law or the drafting of uniform European legislation. The first 1996 edition of the volume has now been updated and completed. German description: Unter "Europaischem Vertragsrecht" versteht dieses Buch die Regeln, die den Rechtsordnungen der europaischen Lander gemeinsam sind: Wie kommt ein gultiger Vertrag zustande? Nach welchen Regeln wird beurteilt, ob eine Vertragspartei die Erfullung des Vertrages verlangen, von dem Vertrag Abstand nehmen, ihn widerrufen oder kundigen oder den Kontrahenten auf Schadensersatz in Anspruch nehmen kann? Lassen sich auf dem Gebiet des Vertragsrechts gemeineuropaische Strukturen auffinden? Gibt es allgemein akzeptierte Regeln? Wie sind sie zu formulieren, wenn man die "Prinzipien des Europaischen Vertragsrechts" oder die Vorschlage des "Draft Common Frame of Reference" berucksichtigt? Dabei werden die Losungen der nationalen Rechtsordnungen ausfuhrlich - wenn auch stets nur als nationale Variationen eines europaischen Themas - behandelt. Das Buch kann deshalb bei der rechtsvergleichenden Ausbildung der jungen europaischen Juristen eine Rolle spielen, ferner auch dort, wo e s um die Vorbereitung europaischen Gesetzesrechts oder um die Reform der nationalen Vertragsrechte geht. Das Buch ist in einer ersten unvollstandigen Auflage schon 1996 erschienen. Die Neuauflage bringt den Text auf den neuen Stand und erganzt ihn um die damals noch fehlenden Abschnitte.

Taking an anthropological approach,Essential Principles of Contract and Sales Law in the Northern Pacific highlights how regional customary and traditional law interact with Anglo-American concepts of contract and sales law to produce a unique amalgam of substantive law in this Pacific region. Author and law professor Daniel P. Ryan compiles and discusses the current contract and sales law applicable in the Pacific region, including the Republics of Palau and the Marshall Islands, Hawaii, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, and the Federated States of Micronesia. Ryan compares and contrasts this regional law to international standards, including the UN Sale of Goods Convention, the UNIDROIT Principles of Contract Law, UNCITRAL Model Law for E-Commerce, the Uniform Commercial Code, the Revised Uniform Commercial Code, and the Restatement (Second) of Contracts. Essential Principles of Contract and Sales Law in the Northern Pacific is essential reading for members of the judiciary, academics, practitioners, students, and businesses within the region and their major trade partners.

Cases and Doctrine

Author: Randy E. Barnett,Nathan B. Oman

Publisher: Wolters Kluwer Law & Business

ISBN: 1454885645

Category: Law

Page: 1248

View: 8093

Contracts: Cases and Doctrine, Sixth Edition, features a mix of lightly-edited classic and contemporary cases that stresses current contract doctrine along with the essential lawyering skill of case analysis—how to sift through the facts of the case to discern the prevailing rules and theory. Randy Barnett and Nate Oman’s innovative text introduces each case and provides the historical background of the iconic cases that make the study of contract law engaging. Study Guide questions help students identify salient issues as they read each case. Judicial biographies of each judge provides additional context. Key Features of the New Edition: The 6th Edition has been edited to make it even more modular and therefore easier for professors to select which doctrines to cover. The introductory materials have been shortened to permit a speedier entry to whichever basic doctrine the professor chooses to begin with. A new section on public policy defenses has been added. Recent developments involving arbitration agreements in the wake of the Supreme Court’s AT&T Mobility case are also covered. In addition, roughly a dozen new cases have been substituted, chosen for their interesting facts or their proven pedagogical usefulness. As always, every effort is made to provide students with background materials on the litigation, such as new judicial biographies and excerpts from recently published scholarship dealing with the cases covered. New cases include: Jordan v. Knafel Arnold Porter v. Fuqua Industries Nguyen v. Barnes & Noble Inc. Also, in keeping with the book’s focus on the “classic” cases we have included some iconic cases missing from earlier editions, including: Masterson v. Sine Security Stove & Manfacturing Co. v. American Railway Express Lefkowitz v. Great Minneapolis Surplus Store Lawrence v. Fox Harris v. Watson

The Law of Contracts

Cases and Materials

Author: James Steven Rogers,Katharine G. Young

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9781683289937

Category: Contracts

Page: 554

View: 2141

This book is designed for use in a single-semester, less than six-credit hours, contracts course. Drawing on the best features of the case method, it departs from the standard, reference-oriented texts, in order to provide concise, coherent, and teaching-oriented materials with a focus on principal cases, questions and notes. The goal of the book is to introduce the deep-seated topics of concern to the law of contracts with selective brevity, in choosing readings in classic and contemporary cases, and UCC and restatement sources, interesting hypotheticals and theoretical and practical reflections. This book also updates the conventional presentation of the subject by providing a more substantive treatment of the law of restitution and of relevant international and comparative materials.
