Most notably, the supplement now includes short annotations that introduce each selection. These annotations put each selection in context by explaining its origins, central purpose(s), scope of application, and current legal status. Students will better understand the selection's point, purpose, and content; and teachers will have less need to explain an assigned selection's context. In addition, the authors have thoroughly updated the content. It includes excerpts from the European Union's 2011 Directive on Consumer Rights and the European Commission's proposal for a European sales law. The new annotations, conjoined with its inclusiveness, currency, and convenience, provide a significant comparative advantage over competing volumes and materials.

Publisher: Wolters Kluwer Law & Business

ISBN: 1454876158

Category: Law

View: 8161

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.
