Product Description

The concise yet comprehensive analysis contained in Understanding Contracts provides a foundation for true understanding and facilitates more than mere rote learning of basic concepts of contracts law.

Understanding Contracts relies on established common law principles as reflected by both appellate cases and by the Restatement (Second) of Contracts as well as on relevant provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.), particularly Article 2 governing sales of goods (including the ALI’s 2003 Revisions). There is limited coverage of the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods, and the UNIDROIT Principles on Commercial Contracts.

Understanding Contracts focuses on the leading contracts cases, carefully explains distinctions that students often misunderstand, and uses extensive internal cross references to assist students in connecting various strands of this highly interrelated subject.
