LLB courses in universities (Foundation subject) and CPE/Diploma courses (core subject). University of London (External) LLB. ILEX courses (para-legals).Postgraduate LLMs in contract law. This major new textbook on contract law is arranged around a transactional analysis. This brings into clearer focus two important episodes in the life of a contract - the negotiation phase and the modification phase. These two episodes are either neglected or examined in a piecemeal way by traditional doctrinally arranged texts. Throughout the book the transactional approach is informed by contextual, empirical and theoretical writing. It also discusses in depth other parts of the law of obligations (e.g. restitution, tort and estoppel) where they impinge on its subject. Overall, this is an original, challenging, academically oriented but also practically satisfying text for modern contract courses, reflecting modern economic reality.

Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1871. xvi, 1022 pp. Reprinted 1999 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 99-28293. ISBN 1-58477-001-5. Cloth. $120. * The landmark work that introduced the revolutionary idea of the "case system" to legal education, which Langdell [1826-1906] instituted in his position as Dean at Harvard law School. A response to the European educational practice of the expository textbook as the basis of study, Langdell invented herein the use of original authorities to teach legal principles in his classes at Harvard. He posted lists of leading cases on the bulletin boards or announced them in class beforehand. The students prepared for class by going to the library, taking down the reports, and studying them. The process was both injurious to the library collection and inconvenient for the students. It was very soon apparent to Langdell that having done away with the traditional textbook, the law library was not a satisfactory alternative. No library had, or could afford, the number of duplicate volumes of the court reports that were required so that all students could have easy and equal access to the cases. Langdell's solution was the casebook. This innovation in legal education publishing led to the proliferation of casebooks that continue today. Walker, Oxford Companion to Law 714.
