Contracts: Law in Action, Fifth Edition Is Available for Adoption!

Fans of the “law in action” tradition will be happy to learn that the authors of the contracts casebook bearing that name—Contracts: Law in Action—are on course to publish a new 5th edition for adoption fall 2024.  This edition is a significant update that consolidates what had Epstein_Wbeen a two-volume casebook into a single volume that can be used for a 3, 4 or 5 credit course.  While the casebook maintains its unique emphasis on remedies and the UCC as exceptionally important teaching tools, the volume also includes important materials on interpretation, performance and breach, which carry on the book’s unique “law in action” tradition.  The authors have also added materials on COVID (and contract in crisis, generally); updated problems to provide more experiential and transactional opportunities; added some very recent material on the use of AI in contract interpretation; and supplemented and/or updated the backgrounds to some key cases, including to provoke thought and conversation on the role of race, gender, socioeconomic status, etc., in contract law. An updated Teachers Manual, which will include sample examples with answer keys, will also be available.
