Overview

THE LAW OF CONTRACTS AND THE UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE, 3rd Edition, covers the important features of common law contracts, as well as Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code. Real cases demonstrate how the concepts in each chapter are applied, and the fact pattern used throughout a chapter demonstrate how contracts and their concepts affect our daily lives. The author reduces contract law to its basic components and provides examples that build on other examples. Chapter summaries, review questions, exercises, a running glossary, and -- new to this edition -- learning objectives help students to fully grasp this complex area of the law.
