Many who attended the Spring Contracts Conference at UNLV saw a presentation of the "Langdellian Limericks," in which the author explains to his dubious readers the educational purposes to which legal Limericks can be deployed. A few asked, if only to be polite, if the complete collection of contracts Limericks was available in one convenient place. The answer at the time was "no." But I have now revised the draft to include an appendix with my complete contracts oeuvre. The paper can be downloaded from SSRN here. Here is the abstract:
Theirs is no lone cri de coeur.
Now bashing Langdell’s de rigueur.
Knowing case law alone,
A young lawyer is prone
To resemble a high-priced poseur.
