This compact casebook is designed for one-semester contracts classes. It helps students synthesize groups of related cases by focusing attention on the principles, policies, and rules of contract law. It employs many transitions and notes written for the students, rather than excerpting works written for professors or practitioners. Questions are limited to central issues to avoid overwhelming and losing the students.
Christopher R. Drahozal, an internationally-recognized expert on arbitration law, joins Steve Burton as co-author of "Principles of Contract Law." In addition to his insights from over 20 years of teaching Contracts, Professor Drahozal has added references to recent empirical research to help students think critically about the cases and rules, and to understand real-world contracting practices.
This revision is a thorough makeover that brings everything up to date, and includes a variety of recent cases, dealing with issues such as electronic communications and Internet contracting, while retaining the brevity and “principles approach” of earlier editions.
