Contracts: Cases, Text, and Problems
The text, article excerpts, cases, and exercises occasionally touch upon legal history, comparative law, international law, economic analysis, and professional responsibility to better help students place the contracts material in a broader context. The exercises include several drafting problems, and one case reveals an overlap between contract law and civil rights law (liability for racial discrimination in contracting under 42 U.S.C. § 1981). Several cases and exercises explore questions of litigation and civil procedure, including standards of appellate review and the ability to create a triable issue of fact and escape summary judgment by offering admissible parol evidence.
This edition includes the Supreme Court's embrace of disgorgement of profits in an interstate-compact case, the discussion of electronic contracting and unconscionability in the Uber ride service litigation in California, coverage of California's Right to Repair Act, and a summary of the Supreme Court case law on the Federal Arbitration Act's preemption of state law defenses to class actions waivers in arbitration clauses.
