This overview of contract law explains concepts clearly and concisely, in an informal, humorous style. For ease of reading and understanding, the book omits footnotes that often increase the difficulty and complexity of the issues. Instead, the footnotes cite cases, with most including short quotations to substantiate assertions made in the text. It also contains numerous examples and illustrations, often with the reader assigned a role in the problem, on the theory that the reader will be most interested and attentive with something at stake. Cross references enable review concepts that constitute building blocks for the current material.

Unlike existing textbooks written for law students on specific subjects impacting real estate transactions, Real Estate Law: Fundamentals for The Development Process uses "The Development Process" as a framework for understanding how the U.S. legal system regulates, facilitates, and generally impacts real estate transactions and their outcomes. This book not only addresses the nature of specific legal issues directly relating to real estate transactions but also how those issues may best be identified and addressed in advance. This book breaks down the myriad of laws influencing the selection, acquisition, development, financing, ownership, and management of real estate, and presents them in context. Readers of Real Estate Law will gain a practical understanding, from the perspective of a real property developer or real estate executive, investor, or lender, of: how to identify potential legal issues before they arise; when to involve a real estate attorney; how to select an attorney with the appropriate, relevant experience; and how to efficiently and economically engage and manage legal counsel in addressing real estate issues. Written as a graduate-level text book, Real Estate Law comes with numerous useful features including a glossary of terms, chapter summaries, discussion questions, further reading, and a companion website with instructor resources. It is a resource of great value to real estate and finance professionals, both with and without law degrees, engaged in one aspect or another of real estate development and finance, who want to become more conversant in the legal issues impacting these transactions.

This casebook focuses on the rules and principles of contract law, as well as the lawyer's role in planning and drafting contracts. Chapter One traces a contract case from the agreement stage, to a breakdown in the parties' relationship, to a lawsuit, to a decision in the trial court, and finally to the appellate court's opinion. It includes supporting material, including the parties' agreement, a correspondence from the lawyer to the client, the complaint, a motion to dismiss, the answer, the trial judge's charge to the jury, the special verdict form, the trial judge's decision on motions after the verdict, and the appellate court opinion. These materials help students understand where cases come from and lawyers' various roles, including planning, negotiating, counseling, drafting, as well as litigating. Following the introduction, this casebook presents extensive material on the theory and practice of transactional planning and drafting, as well as additional materials from lawyers involved in the cases. The seventh edition offers comprehensive coverage of contract law theories of obligation, including bargain, promissory estoppel, unjust enrichment, and tort arising in the contract setting. This edition includes new cases and secondary sources on developing issues of contract law. In particular, the casebook introduces several new readings on the psychology underlying contractual obligation. The casebook highlights new approaches to the problem of assent over the internet, to the battle-of-the-forms, and to consideration. The casebook retains its strength in traditional subjects such as good faith, parole evidence, gap filling, conditional obligation, and breach, but the Seventh Edition contains fewer pages than earlier editions and is suitable for a 4, 5 or 6 hour course. Another goal of the new edition is to present interesting and enjoyable materials. It includes, among other things, cartoons, notes on unusual cases, and cases and problems involving public figures such as the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, and Michael Jordan. The Seventh Edition even highlights (through a squib case) the relationship of contract law to epic of Gilgamesh, Woody Guthrie, the Declaration of Independence, Noah and The Great Flood, Game of Thrones, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Trek, President Obama, and Euclids proof of the Infinity of Primes, among other references.With CasebookPlus you'll receive a print book, lifetime digital access to a downloadable eBook, 12-month online access to self-assessment quizzes tied to the casebook, leading study aids, Gilbert® Law Dictionary and an outline starter.eBook and Learning Library - Lifetime digital access to a downloadable eBook, 12-month online access to self-assessment quizzes tied to the casebook, leading study aids, Gilbert® Law Dictionary and an outline starter.
