Learning contract law will be less daunting when the Fourth Edition of E. Allan Farnsworth's Contracts is available for extra assistance.
Lawyers use the term "boilerplate" to refer to the provisions at a contract's end-choice of law, notice, arbitration, assignments, etc. Costly problems arise when drafters ignore the subtleties of these provisions. This remarkable book gives you new insights into language you've seen countless times. Written by expert practitioners and incorporating the latest case law, the book covers over 20 provisions. For each provision, it explains the law and parses the provision in detail, including variations. You'll never look at a contract the same way again.
Students will better understand the selectionâe(tm)s point, purpose, and content; and teachers will have less need to explain an assigned selectionâe(tm)s context. This volume can be used with any contracts casebook.
This Understanding treatise is designed for first-year law students enrolled in Contracts. The text explains common law principles of contract law using cases and examples that students commonly encounter in this first-year course. It draws illustrations from the Restatement (Second) of Contracts, and from Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code as it has been adopted in all fifty states. This edition includes expanded material on the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods, and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts, appropriate to a basic course in Contracts, and on modern statutes regarding electronic contracting.
Understanding Contracts was written with the understanding that Contracts will be one of the most challenging courses first-year law students will take. It explains how key concepts apply in several recurring basic fact patterns. It then builds on those fact patterns to explain how the law is more difficult to apply in business transactions with more complex facts. A key feature of Understanding Contracts, that is not found in other similar books, is its conscious incorporation of basic explanations of the common business practices to which the law of contracts applies. The feature helps students, many of whom have not had any background in the business world, understand contract law in the business settings in which it frequently applies. The book also provides detailed topic headings that students can use to develop their own comprehensive course outline.

This study aid features an innovative method of content organization. It uses a checklist format to lead students through questions they need to ask to fully evaluate the legal problem they are trying to solve. It also synthesizes the material in a way that most students are unable to do on their own, and assembles the different issues, presenting a clear guide to procedural analysis that students can draw upon when writing their exams. Other study aids provide sample problems, but none offer the systematic approach to problem solving found in this book.
