K: A Common Law Approach to Contracts

K: A Common Law Approach to Contracts is a highly focused, case-based contract law text from the distinguished writing team of George and Korobkin. In addition to offering a comprehensive treatment of the basic issues of contract law, this stimulating casebook emphasizes development of analogical reasoning skills throughout. Each section is limited to three types of materials — brief narrative, judicial opinions and discussion problems — and is designed to teach students how to read opinions, analyze issues, distinguish material from immaterial facts, and apply holdings to similar problems.
