Overview

THE LAW OF CONTRACTS AND THE UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE, 3e, covers all the important features of common law contracts, as well as Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code in a practical, understandable, and realistic manner. Real cases demonstrate how the concepts in each chapter are applied, and the fact pattern is used throughout the chapter to demonstrate how contracts and their concepts affect our daily lives, often with unusual results. Using a fluid and interesting writing style, the author reduces contract law to its basic components and provides examples that build on other examples. Chapter summaries, review questions, exercises, a running glossary, and--new to this edition--learning objectives help your students to fully grasp this complex area of the law.
