Review: Contracts: A Context and Practice Casebook by Michael Hunter Schwartz and Denise Riebe
After having thoroughly studied this casebook over the last few weeks, I believe that it accomplishes what it sets out to do. Not only does it train students in doctrine, it teaches the students to apply that doctrine, a skill that many law school classes don’t teach. It also teaches professionalism, a neglected skill in the first year. Most importantly, it provides contracts teachers with a tool they can use to change their teaching methods without a great deal of work.
Excerpts of the book can be found in the course portfolio featuring Professor Schwartz' first-year contracts class.
