  • Description: This book brings contract law to life through contemporary problems to help students build a skill set they can use in practice. In the real world of practice, abstract contract principles are applied to specific factual settings. Facts don't arrive pre-digested and regurgitated for baby birds or law associates. This book pickpockets life for real-world documents and contemporary situations to help students learn how contract law works in practice. Concise discussion of the law accompanying each problem provides a base for students and enough material for traditional Socratic method teaching. Imperfect but real contracts will give students the chance to see how client counseling, fact gathering and careful crafting of contract language can help clients avoid disputes. Stories from art, sports and internet games make the contract concepts vivid and memorable to facilitate student engagement and productive classroom discussion.
