Summary
Adaptable for instructors with different teaching techniques, Problems in Contract Law: Cases and Materials can teach by traditional case analysis, through problem-based instruction, or using theoretical inquiry. The balanced blend of traditional and contemporary cases combine with cogent explanatory text to help students place cases in a larger legal context. A significant treatment of the CISG is offered. The Seventh Edition continues the previous edition's reflection on the complexity of current 21st century contract law with its varied strains and constant flux, going beyond earlier editions' emphasis on the historical progression from "classical" to "modern" contract law. Acknowledging the challenges increasingly exerted on the conventional contract law system over the past ten to fifteen years, the Seventh Edition explores new forms, such as electronic contracting. In addition, it considers the increased use of mandatory arbitration clauses in mass adhesion contracting (banks, communications providers, hospitals, for example). Even more flexibility is provided for instructors who prefer to reorder the chapters rather than teach them in a linear sequence
