1 Review
This contracts casebook includes introductions that quickly orient students within unfamiliar territories. Cases present both the doctrine applied and, in some instances, the shortcomings of that doctrine. the authors express their disagreement about basic issues, so that students can experience the range of possible in modern contract law. to save time, the authors avoid extensive citation of academic scholarship except as it pertains to the cases being studied. Certain traditional subjects such as offer and acceptance and consideration are reduced to the bare minimum, where more pivotal subjects such as form contracts, arbitration clauses, and the modern concept of unconscionability are considered at length.

Review: Modern Law of Contracts (American Casebook)

User Review  - Nadja - Goodreads

For a casebook, the editing's pretty good, but the commentary by the editors is not infrequently amusing. I wouldn't have counted this as a read, however, aside from the fact that I had to suffer through it and it's probably why I will at the least be behind on my year goal for books. Read full review
