Additional Book Details

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 third edition of Contracts: A Context and Practice Casebook reflects an effort to move the book and accompanying teaching materials into the next generation. Like prior editions of the book, the third edition adopts a learner-centered approach and draws deeply from modern brain science. The book contains dozens of problems, many of which the authors created in collaboration with practicing attorneys, and, in the very extensive teachers manual, includes learning objectives for each doctrinal area, dozens of multiple-choice questions, and detailed teaching notes.

This new edition includes the integration of the multiple-choice questions, which have been substantially revised with Carolina Academic Presss Core Knowledge software and the use of color throughout the book, which adds visual interest, promotes clarity, and provides emphasis.
