Contracts: Cases, Discussion, and Problems, Fourth Edition is known for its strikingly clear, straightforward text that illuminates cases as well as concepts and theory. The book focuses on modern cases to expose students to contemporary contract law, but it also includes many important or iconic older cases. The cases are set in context by extensive author-written explanatory text. Insightful questions draw attention to difficult and crucial aspects of the law and prompt vigorous class discussion. Numerous problems, ranging from simple to complex, supplement cases and introduce topics taught most effectively through problems. The casebook’s traditional organization begins with formation and then corresponds to the sequence followed by the Restatement (2nd) of Contracts and treatises. Its concise, efficient presentation results in an optimum length for the course. Procedural issues are highlighted when presented by the cases and transactional issues such as drafting, client counseling, and negotiation are raised through the use of questions and small exercises throughout the text. Strengthening the text’s focus on contemporary methods of contracting, modern issues in standard contracts are explored along with contracts entered into electronically. International and comparative material offers alternative approaches for students to consider, such as those taken by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts.

"Europarechtliche Bezüge des Privatrechts sind zu einem festen Bestandteil der juristischen Ausbildung und Praxis geworden: Immer häufiger werden europarechtliche Fragestellungen wie die richtlinienkonforme Auslegung nationalen Rechts, eine unmittelbare Anwendbarkeit des Gemeinschaftsrechts oder Staatshaftungsansprüche aufgrund einer unzureichenden Umsetzung des Europarechts auch in zivilrechtliche Klausuren integriert. Das Lehrbuch bietet eine kompakte Darstellung der Einwirkungen des Europarechts auf das nationale Privatrecht. Es vermittelt dem Examenskandidaten das hierfür erforderliche Wissen, insbesondere: Klausurrelevante Schnittstellen zwischen Europarecht und nationalem Recht, Grundbegriffe der europäischen Methodik, europarechtliche Vorgaben für das nationale Recht. Eine Vielzahl an Fallbeispielen mit Lösungen unterstützt die Umsetzung des Erlernten im Examen. Neben dem Vertragsrecht, Deliktsrecht und Handelsrecht findet das Gesellschaftsrecht, Arbeitsrecht, Kapitalmarktrecht, Zivilprozessrecht und Wettbewerbsrecht besondere Berücksichtigung."--Verl.
