New to the 10th Edition:
Five new principal cases that reflect advances in or improved statements of contract law.
One restored principal case (Oppenheimer & Co. v. Oppenheim, Appel, Dixon & Co.) that provides valuable perspectives on a fundamental area of contract law.
Twelve new problems, including several shorter problems, to provide more review options for teachers and students and to add contemporary fact patterns.
Eight new tables and flow charts to assist students with the conceptual structure of complicated legal subjects.
Editing of note and text material to reduce length without affecting coverage and to capture new legal developments.
Reorganization of text and comment material to focus comments primarily on historical developments, allowing professors greater flexibility in assigning or deleting comments.
Student accessibility to deleted cases from prior editions through Casebook Connect, allowing professors the further flexibility of continuing to easily assign cases for which they have a particular preference.
Professors and students will benefit from:
The authors’ emphasis on making the material accessible for both students taking and professors teaching the course - rejecting a hide-the-ball approach.
The continued appeal to professors with various teaching methodologies: traditional, problem-oriented, theoretical, and practical.
The comprehensive nature of the contents allows professors the flexibility to teach their students the basics or conduct a more in-depth analysis of a given topic.
The continued mixture of classic and contemporary cases.
Review questions at the end of each chapter that are primarily designed for students to perform self-assessments of their grasp of the material. Answers with explanations are included in an appendix within the book.
