Adaptable for instructors with different teaching techniques, Problems in Contract Law: Cases and Materials can teaching by traditional case analysis, through problem-based instruction, or using theoretical inquiry. The balanced blend of traditional and contemporary cases combine with cogent explanatory text to help students place cases in a larger legal context. A significant treatment of the CISG is offered. The Seventh Edition continues the previous edition's reflection on the complexity of current 21st century contract law with its varied strains and constant flux, going beyond earlier editions' emphasis on the historical progression from "classical" to "modern" contract law. Acknowledging the challenges increasingly exerted on the conventional contract law system over the past ten to fifteen years, the Seventh Edition explores new forms, such as electronic contracting. In addition, it considers the increased use of mandatory arbitration clauses in mass adhesion contracting (banks, communications providers, hospitals, for example). Even more flexibility is provided for instructors who prefer to reorder the chapters rather than teach them in a linear sequence.

Cases, Problems, and Materials on Contracts is distinguished among other texts by its excellent organization and thorough coverage of the basic themes of contract law. The accessible, straightforward text begins with clear introduction to each section or concept. Carefully selected cases have been tightly edited for the best effect. Using an engaging problem-oriented approach, students learn contract doctrine by applying their knowledge to short, well-conceived hypotheticals. Offering a flexible organization, the book starts with “Offer and Acceptance” and moves on to “Consideration,” however, the book is designed so courses can easily start with “Consideration” or “Remedies.” Its flexibility allows for use in courses in which professors are required to teach sales, yet can also be adapted to avoid teaching the UCC. A manageable length accounts for the book being used in courses of 4, 5, and 6-hour length. The authors have worked closely on all chapters to deliver a seamless revision to this popular text. Key Features of the New Edition: The seventh edition begins with a new chapter containing an expanded introduction to the study of contracts law. Every chapter now includes new introductory material All chapters, with the exception of chapter one, end with an “Assessment” section, which consists of multiple choice questions and answers, designed to help the students review the material just learned.
