Product Description

Skills & Values: Contracts allows students to experience the connection between theory, doctrine, and practice in Contracts law. The exercises provide an opportunity for studying Contract concepts from the perspective of a practicing attorney who must not only know the law, but also employ lawyering skills and values - such as legal strategy, factual development, advocacy, counseling, drafting, problem solving, and ethical principles - in zealously representing a client. 

Each chapter in Skills & Values: Contracts addresses a specific topic covered in most Contracts law school courses. The chapters begin with an introduction to help bridge the gap between the actual practice of law and the doctrine and theory studied in class. Students will then have the opportunity to engage in active, "hands on" learning by working through a stand-alone exercise that simulates a real-life legal dilemma. The exercises are as authentic as possible, incorporating real-world situations and materials. The self-assessment tools suggest ways that a practicing attorney might have approached each exercise. It is not meant to provide "the answer," but to identify issues and strategies students should have considered in order to effectively represent a client. 

The companion Web Course also contains: 

• forms to assist students to complete some of the exercises 

• links to key materials 

• multiple choice quiz questions

• supplemental materials designed to increase students? understanding of both doctrine and practice. 

The text in the book will prompt readers to access the online Web Course materials when the materials are relevant to an exercise.
