In Problems in Contract Law: Cases and Materials, Ninth Edition, by Charles L. Knapp, Nathan M. Crystal, and Harry G. Prince, a balance of traditional and contemporary cases reflect the development and complexity of contract law. Explanatory notes and text place classic and contemporary cases in their larger legal context, while questions and problem exercises bridge theory and practice. This successful book includes various perspectives and contractual settings, and offers a highly intelligent, contemporary treatment of contract law. It can easily be used in teaching by traditional case analysis, through problem-based instruction, or using theoretical inquiry.
New to the Ninth Edition:
Seven new cases that reflect advances in or improved statements of contract law
Two restored cases (Kirksey v. Kirksey and Hill v. Jones) that provide valuable perspectives on fundamental areas of contract law
Eight new problems (including seven net additions and one replacement) to provide more review options for students and to add contemporary fact patterns
A new, two-color design featuring interesting photographs illustrating people and places discussed in some of the cases
Editing of note and text material to reduce length without affecting coverage
Reorganization of text and comment material to focus comments primarily on historical developments, allowing professors flexibility in assigning or deleting comments
Student accessibility to deleted cases from prior editions through Connected Casebook, allowing professors the further flexibility of continuing to easily assign cases for which they have a particular preference
Professors and students will benefit from:
A mixture of classic and contemporary cases
The authors’ emphasis on accessibility of the material—rejecting a hide-the-ball approach
Review questions at the end of each chapter that are primarily designed for students to perform self-assessments of their grasp of the material. Answers with explanations are included in an appendix within the book.
