Adaptable for instructors with different teaching techniques, Problems inContract Law: Cases and Materials can teaching by traditional caseanalysis, through problem-based instruction, or using theoretical inquiry. Thebalanced blend of traditional and contemporary cases combine with cogentexplanatory text to help students place cases in a larger legal context. Asignificant treatment of the CISG is offered. Three powerful ancillariesaccompany the text: an outstanding, detailed Teacher’s Manual with samplesyllabi for various credit courses, sample lesson plans, specific questions,and detailed analysis of all problems in the book; a companion statutory andcase supplement: Rules of Contract Law, 2011-2012 Edition (July 2011); and avital Website with frequently updated related material for instructors’ use.The Seventh Edition continues the previous edition’s reflection on thecomplexity of current 21st century contract law with its varied strains andconstant flux, going beyond earlier editions’ emphasis on the historicalprogression from “classical” to “modern” contract law. Acknowledging thechallenges increasingly exerted on the conventional contract law system overthe past ten to fifteen years, the Seventh Edition explores new forms,such as electronic contracting. In addition, it considers the increased use ofmandatory arbitration clauses in mass adhesion contracting (banks,communications providers, hospitals, for example). Even more flexibility isprovided for instructors who prefer to reorder the chapters rather than teachthem in a linear sequence. Shorter, sharper notes appear as a result ofrelocating student-oriented material to the website and professor-orientedmaterial to the Teacher’s Manual. In addition, shorter problems giveinstructors more options between the questions in the Notes and Questionssections and the full-blown, integrated Problems.Features:Adaptable for various teaching techniques - traditional case analysis,problem-based instruction, and theoretical inquiryProvides a balanced blend of traditional and contemporary casesIncludes explanatory notes and textplaces cases in a larger contextexplores related pointsOffers significant treatment of the CISGAccompanied by three ancillariesAn outstanding, detailed Teacher’s Manualsample syllabi for various credit coursessample lesson plansspecific questionsdetailed analysis of all problems in the bookCompanion statutory and case supplement: Rules of Contract Law, 2011-2012Edition (July 2011)A revitalized Website with frequently updated material for instructors’usThoroughly updated, the revised Seventh Edition presents:Deepens the reflection on complexityof 21st century contract lawgoes beyond earlier view of the historical progression from “classical” to“modern”explores varied strains and constant flux of modern contract lawExplores new challenges exerted on conventional contract law systemnew forms of contracting such as electronicincreased use of mandatory arbitration clauses in mass adhesion contracting(e.g., banks, communications providers, hospitals)Provides increased flexibility for instructorschapters easily reordered to match any course structureSharpened notesstudent-oriented material relocated to the Websiteinstructor-oriented material moved to the Teacher’s Manual.
