Contracts

A Context and Practice Casebook

Second Edition

Michael Hunter Schwartz and Adrian J. Walters

2015 | 818 pp | ISBN 978-1-61163-554-6 | casebound | $99.00
Electronic Teacher’s Manual available (PowerPoint slides available for adopters)

Every chapter in this innovative casebook places students in roles as practitioners handling simulated law practice problems; provides context in the form of an overview of the law, similar to that which an attorney would read before reading cases in a new subject area; includes questions designed to encourage students to find the applicable statutes and cases on point in the state where the student is planning to practice law; includes exercises, visual aids, and case reading scaffolds, designed to engage students with a wide range of learning styles; and ends with professionalism questions addressing ethical and professional identity questions suggested by the materials in the chapter.

The second edition retains the style, format, and teaching and learning goals of the first edition, but some cases have been replaced or re-edited, and many of the textual materials, problems, exercises, and case questions have been revised, supplemented, or updated. 

This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.

Contracting Law

Fifth Edition

Amy KastelyDeborah Waire PostNancy Ota, and Deborah Zalesne

 2015 | 948 pp | ISBN 978-1-59460-989-3 | casebound | $110.00

Student Workbook forthcoming 2016
Electronic Teacher’s Manual forthcoming

Revised and updated to 2015, the fifth edition of Contracting Law continues the clear explanations of contract doctrine, engaging cases, and thought-provoking cultural and historical materials that have made this casebook a favorite of students and professors. Students and faculty appreciate the fact that no separate statutory supplement is necessary. Selected provisions from the Restatement Second of Contracts and the Uniform Commercial Code are included in the casebook as appendices. The revised Student Workbook (purchased separately) is updated to complement the fifth edition with flow charts, vocabulary lists, problems and structured exercises to help students understand legal doctrines, case briefing, and synthesis. Students can use the workbook independently or exercises can be used in class discussions.

The fifth edition augments the cultural material with notes and questions showing the social contexts for specific contract doctrines. Many sections are shortened and reorganized for ease of use in 3-, 4-, or 5-credit courses, while UCC coverage is maintained for those courses designed to include sales law.
