Pile of BooksWe have an especially large collection of new articles this week in large part thanks to the efforts of Jeff Lipshaw and the good people at Suffolk Law who hosted a conference in honor of the thirtieth anniversary of the publication of Charles Fried's classic work, Contract as Promise.  As the riches below indicate, this conference will provide theoretical fuel to keep contracts profs going for some time to come.  Charles Fried is pictured below.
