Benfield and Greenfield's Cases and Materials on Sales, 7th
The objectives of the Seventh Edition are twofold: to help the student understand the substantive law of sales and develop the skills of statutory analysis in the context of a comprehensive statute that contains critical definitions and numerous cross references. The materials consist of cases, text, and problems. The cases are selected because of their effectiveness as teaching materials, presenting difficult legal questions and explaining the business background of the disputes. The notes elaborate on the background and push the student to question the rationale of the court. The problems further explore the soundness of the court’s decision and present new issues of statutory analysis for the student to consider. They require the student to dig deeply into the language of the statute and the Official Comments, working back and forth among the various sections that are relevant to solving the problem.
