Contracts (4)

Contracts is the study of private law making, i.e., the consensual creation of legally enforceable rights and duties among private parties. The course examines basic concepts of economic relationships, the tension between freedom of contract and fairness in dealing, and the interplay between rules and “justice.” The course addresses such substantive issues as how to read a contract, contract formation, enforceability, conditions, defenses, and remedies. Contracts, therefore, provides a foundation for much of the curriculum: Business Associations, Commercial Law, Consumer Protection, and more. Evening students will take Contracts (4). Depending upon academic assignments made in the summer prior to the start of the student’s first year in law school, some day students will take Contracts (4); other day students will take Introduction to Contracts (2) and Contracts II (3).
