Contracts in the Real World

I’m a bit behind in my blogging as I am finishing up a few writing projects. That doesn’t, however, mean that I haven’t found the time to read other people's writing.  In fact, I recently received Lawrence Cunningham’s book, Contracts in the Real World:  Stories of Popular Contracts and Why They Matter.  I suggest that you all run out and order the same (here – I’ve made it easy for you by providing the link).  First of all, let me make it clear that I do not know Professor Cunningham.  I’ve never even met him although he might have once disagreed with me on a list serve dispute.  His book is a very interesting collection of modern day contracts – newsworthy contracts involving current events or celebrities – and he does a brilliant job of tying them in with  classic contract law cases.  I think it might be fun to fit in a few of these examples to jazz up classroom discussion.  For contracts nuts, it’s just plain fun reading.  It’s in many ways a staunch defense of contract law, assuring us that it still works and does what it’s supposed to do.  I tend to agree when it comes to non-digital contracts.  When it comes to digital contracts, however, I think things are a total mess....
