The law of contracts permeates most, if not all, other subjects of legal education. Principles of Contract Law surveys the fundamental legal principles underlying the law of contracts, addressing such customary topics as contract formation, defenses and other doctrines of avoidance, breach and performance, remedies, as well as such other collateral but related topics involving third-party beneficiaries, assignments and delegations. The text addresses the traditional common law principles governing contracts, and yet is accompanied by a steadied discussion of relevant commercial law principles pertaining to the sale of goods under Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code. When able to do so, the authors remained loyal to their commitment to utilize time-honored, classic common law cases in their presentment of the subject matter. While this textbook adopts a classical approach to the study of contracts, it is also provides a relevant and robust experience for the aspiring law student.
