The second edition continues to emphasize doctrinal comprehension and the skills of legal argument and judgment. Every chapter includes "traditional" and contemporary cases that provide rich focus for discussion. The contextual material provides a background for understanding -- particularly cases and doctrine. Theoretical readings provide fruitful focus for discussions of law and economics, legal narrative theories, and relational components in contract law.
The second edition of Contracting Law will retain the book's clear, reader-friendly style and engaging interdisciplinary material, but in a shorter form. Some material has been omitted, recent cases have been added, and some of the doctrinal commentary updated.
