This entirely revised and updated sixth edition of Contracting Law continues to use engaging and topical cases, extensive textual explanations, and thought-provoking illustrations from literature, history, and current events. Continuing the pioneering work of earlier editions, it integrates doctrine, skills, and issues of social justice, morality, and ethics. New text, questions, and practical exercises cover both doctrine and the foundational client-advising skills to be tested on the "next generation" bar exam.
New features enhance accessibility to the student reader. The language is plain, conversational, and inclusive. Two-color graphic design, charts, and diagrams aid reading comprehension and visual learning. The book continuously reviews and synthesizes covered material to show the relationships among chapters and doctrines and between contracts and other areas of law. To integrate and connect doctrinal concepts, it repeats one simple hypothetical across multiple chapters, applying different doctrines each time. When necessary to understand the cases, it briefly explains basic procedural and substantive concepts from other first-year courses.
