Advanced Contracts Seminar

Credit Hours: 2

Advance Contracts will explore topics introduced in Contracts I & II in more depth and with greater reference to philosophy, social science, and law & economics. It should not be thought of as Contracts III. Topics to be explored will include the nature of promise, breach, damages, comparisons between the UCC and common law, and whether courts should expand or limit the enforcement of agreements. Students will write short response papers on the weekly reading, which taken as a whole will account for 25% of the grade. Class participation will account for another 25%, with the final paper counting for 50% of the grade.
