There's a lot of interest in comparative contract law these days. For those who've thought they'd like to teach in that area, but who've been intimidated by the prospect of putting together materials, relax. Carolina Academic Press has launched a new casebook, Comparative Contract Law, by Tadas Klimas, dean of the law school at Vytautas Magnus University in Lithuania.
Klimas is unusually well-suited for the task, since he trained as an American lawyer, practiced law in both New York and Lithuania, worked as a legal adviser to the Lithuanian Parliament, and is a founder and editor of the Journal of Baltic Law. The book is due out later this year.
