Description

This text covers the materials used in a two semester Contracts course and a Sales course covering U.C.C. article 2. It blends classic common law contract cases with 21st-century opinions and draws heavily upon the problem method of instruction. It compares and contrasts the common law of contracts, the Restatement of the Law Second–Contracts, and Uniform Commercial Code Article 2 rules, as well as the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts, and explores their evolution and application. It emphasizes the importance of context to the application of legal principles and discusses the overlap between the knowledge and skills of a litigator and those of a transactional attorney. The fifth edition includes updates covering further developments in the parol evidence rule and evolution of contract doctrine in the wake of technological progress in the twenty first century.
