Examples & Explanations: Contracts, Sixth Edition

Brian Blum is widely regarded for writing and teaching skills that help first-year students understand difficult concepts. The unique, time-tested pedagogy in Contracts: Examples and Explanations combines text with examples, explanations, and questions to test student comprehension and provide practice in applying information to fact patterns. The questions (in which there are a variety of issues in one fact situation) are similar to those on a law school or bar examination. Diagrams provide useful visual aids for remembering key points. UCC Article 2 is covered throughout the book as is the important contemporary trend of electronic contracting.

The Sixth Edition expands and refines the discussion of standard and electronic contracts. The text places greater emphasis on standard arbitration and forum selection clauses, which have been frequently challenged in recent cases. References to the failed 2003 revisions of Article 2 are brief and selective. The Sixth Edition presents updated text as well as new examples and explanations. Many new cases with interesting facts and discussion are used to illustrate text and form the basis of examples and explanations.
