Repeatedly quoted and cited by the North Carolina Supreme Court and the North Carolina Court of Appeals, North Carolina Contract Law authoritatively analyzes the law of contracts, both under North Carolina’s common law and Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code. Twenty years in the making, the second edition of this highly-esteemed treatise now spans two volumes, has been expanded, revised, and updated, and over the course of more than 1,300 pages and nearly 5,000 footnotes, comprehensively examines more than two centuries of contract law.
The only legal treatise on North Carolina contract law, its easy-to-use format includes tables of cases and statutes, and appendices. The treatise’s annual Cumulative Supplement provides analysis of the most recent North Carolina decisions on contract law.
This far-reaching work is divided into two volumes. Volume 1 exhaustively analyzes the creation and enforcement of common-law contracts and issues of mutual assent, consideration, parol evidence, and the statute of frauds. All types of common-law contracts are discussed in detail, including employment agreements, construction contracts, leases, contracts for the sale of land, options, broker’s contracts, master services agreements, development agreements, settlement agreements, and loan and guaranty agreements. This in-depth analysis covers cases decided from 1795 to the present.
Volume 2 thoroughly examines contracts for the sale of goods as governed by North Carolina’s version of Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code and as interpreted by the State’s appellate courts. Warranty issues are given an extensive discussion, as is the interplay between the UCC’s Article 2 and North Carolina’s Products Liability Act. Volume 2’s Appendices contain the full text of that Act, as well as North Carolina’s version of the UCC’s Article 1 and Article 2.
Both practical and scholarly, North Carolina Contract Law puts thousands of cases at the reader’s fingertips, providing authoritative answers along with insightful analysis into the reasoning behind a rule of law. Lawyers, judges and law students will find this treatise saves considerable time and offers definitive answers to complex issues. North Carolina Contract Law is an invaluable resource for litigators and business, construction, employment, and real estate lawyers, all of whom will find it an indispensable guide for contract review, drafting and litigation.
