4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Study Guide
I bought this book as part of the The First Year Program which contains a total of five outlines (Civil Procedure, Contracts, Criminal Law, Property, and Torts), plus Gilbert's Dictionary of Legal Terms and Gilbert's 8 Secrets of Top Exam Performance in Law School by Charles Whitebread. It got me through my first year of law school and I highly recommend them to all first year law students.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gilbert Law Summaries- Contracts
helped me put contract in a working order for my outlines and essay writings + cleared up concepts from hornbook readings

5-0 out of 5 stars Overall good
Overall good review of Contract Law. Only suggestion is picking up black law dictionary with purchase some words they assume the reader knows which can damper learning experience. I would suggest not using their essay questions; rather check with your school library for old ones from your school. The multiple choice practice were dead on with my schools multiple choice. As above dont put eggs in one basket; I did well in contracts first semester but this is one of three books I personally read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Supplement
I just finished my Contracts final, but I will not blame my grade on this book.

This does what it is supposed to.It supplements the material that the Prof. presents in class.If you are not sure what the modern rule is, this is where you go.If you are not sure if there is an exception, this is where you go.If you are not sure what the basic functions of the rule is, this is where you check.If you are not sure what Restatement or UCC section applies, this is where you check.

If you want to know the reasons Why, this is not where you go.The book explains the rationale behind the rule in only a few situations.If you have an exam that is only multiple choice, you could skip every class, read this cover to cover three times and do pretty well.Unfortunately, most exams are not like that.

This book is great for supplementing your notes and filling in the gray areas.For that, it is invaluable, but like all commercial outlines, it cannot replace your notes.

As the previous reviewer says, the flow charts are excellent.This certainly facilitates understanding, I would just recommend not putting all your eggs in this basket.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Aid!
The charts in this book are what makes it so effective and helpful.Once again Gilbert's has provided law students with a great teaching aid and exam study guide.The questions in the back are very good, but beware 1L's in your first semester not having all of the information necessary to fully answer the questions.

The charts in this book are fantastic and are not to be missed!A must have for law students! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great supplemental study aid
I'm a big fan of the Law in a Flash series. These cards make for a great supplemental study aid. The best feature, in my opinion, is the "scenario" questions. These are like mini-fact patterns designed to get you thinking about one particular issue. I've found these to help get my mind around particular topics in a format conducive to an essay style exam (which all of my instructors use). I do wish that the cards had some more "concept w/definition" cards (where one side gives a word, concept, or issue, and the answer side has a rote definition), but it's not a major issue. I also do think that there was a bit too much repetition at times, and the product could have been pared down a bit.But maybe that repetition helps some people, despite annoying people like me.

5-0 out of 5 stars contracts-review
Extremely pleased with product.It was in exactly the condition described and sent very quickly, much appreciated.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money or time!
First - the flash cards were often too simplistic or just wrong.
Second - while many people may have done well with them they aren't an efficient study method (at least they weren't for me). The cards often have too much info on them or they are asking too obscure of a question to be useful when compared to an E+E or the Siegel's series.

I suggest that you save your money, these weren't cheap, and use an E+E and Siegels to learn how to answer questions and review. Law school exams are more about depth of analysis than simple memorization anyway.

1-0 out of 5 stars These cards SUCK
Mostly a waste of money. The cards overemphasize minor technical points (tons of cards on the rules about minors contracting, e.g.), fail to give anything more than basic hypos on major concepts (promissory estoppel, consideration, etc.), and are chock full of ridiculous, useless and cumbersome mnemonic devices.

4-0 out of 5 stars A must for any contracts student
Love these cards! I use them to supplement my readings while on the bus or long commutes. Easy to carry, they include hypos and rules. A must! ... Read more

Other miscellaneous revisions are found in every chapter of the Second Edition. In addition, the glossary and the index have been thoroughly revised. In its updated form, Working with Contracts remains the most useful and practical guide for anyone dealing with sophisticated agreements. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book
Virtually every line in this book contains material recommendations regarding contract drafting.All lawyers should read this book at start of career and keep it handy. This book is hard to put down.

4-0 out of 5 stars Especially Good for Financing and Acquisitions Contracts
This is a good book on contract drafting, which I recommend if you write contracts dealing with financing and acquisitions, which is the author's specialty.

For a more comprehensive resource on contract drafting, I recommend Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, Second Edition by Ken Adams. That book, and Ken's web site AdamsDrafting are, in my opinion, the best sources available for advice on contract drafting.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic
My only regret is not reading this book earlier in my career.For all first years and law students, it is a must read.If you are a transactional attorney, this book is a great resource.

Charles Fox deserves an award for creating a road map for junior associates.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for the new lawyer on contracts drafting and negotiating
I am a new attorney who just started practicing as a transactional lawyer. I ordered 14 books on this subject. There is no other book that summarized the contracts writing process and the relevant set of legal skills that help in it like this book.
I learned how to darft contracts by doing it while working for a large software company in Seattle. Since I became an attorney, the process became even more interesting (I had many reference points) as I now have the legal skills to add. This helped me combine the hands-on knowledge with the legal theories I learned in school to improve my drafting skills.
The language used is so readable; analogies are thought provoking; techniques explained are useful; and review and interpretation guides are invaluable. Great resource for a new lawyer!

I'd like to see the picture of the book I want to buy next time. It can show the real condition of the book.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK
The book is in good quality, but I received the wrong edition. Then I refund my money.

1-0 out of 5 stars If your prof requires this book, then you should invest in a supplement
This is my second semester of using this book, and it is awful. The authors will introduce concepts as if you already know them without explaining them. Also this book is heavy into referring other books to read to learn more about the concepts, which is not helpful in the least because they fail to even explain anything. If you are assigned this book, invest in a supplement because otherwise you will be lost! The Examples & Explanations is very good, but what supplement you need can vary from professor to professor because each can approach the ideas in different ways.

3-0 out of 5 stars Book Reseller
Book was clearly marked "not for resale". Good deal but not exactly what I thought I was buying

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Casebook
zanandjayna's review sums up much about how I feel about this casebook.

Other complaints that I had is that the notes/comments sections are quite poor and are usually of little relevance tothe case and/or concept you just studied. Also many of the cases have been poorly edited, leaving out key concepts that most prof's expect you to know.

All in all, this is a poor casebook. If you use it i recommend a good supplement.

With Law School Legends, you’ll get a brilliant law professor explaining an entire subject to you in one simple, dynamic lecture. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy "Sum & Substance Contracts" instead
If you're a law student who is studying contracts these lectures WILL NOT help you. Epstein is a brilliant and effective scholar who does everything in his power to hide that fact from you in these lectures. The information he provides is general and too vague to be useful to effective law students.He mentions all the right principles (Offer/Acceptance, Consideration, Adhesion, ect) but with no real discussion of the rules and exceptions behind the principles that you'll need on your exam. It feels like Epstein is teaching a mini-course for non-lawyers who only need a passing familiarity with a few contract principles.
His advice on how to take the exam is essentially just a series of reminders like, "On an exam, for Offer and Acceptance, make sure that someone is offering something and that someone is clearly accepting the offer." -Brilliant!I stopped listening after the first CD, by then it was obvious that it wasn't going to be helpful.
If you want a good Contract review, buy the "Sum & Substance Contracts" audio lectures by Douglas Whaley. Contracts (Sum & Substance Cd's "Outstanding Professor"Series)
They cost more, but it is worth the money. Whaley will give you an in-depth understanding on the principles and give you straight-forward rules you can apply on your exam questions. I used his CD as I was constructing my outline and preparing for the exam. I received a 91 on my exam which was the 3rd highest grade in my class.
Do yourself a favor and pass on Epstein's contracts.

5-0 out of 5 stars Saving me in Contracts from Abstract Professor

I almost returned the cd after reading the reviews but decided against it after getting assigned an abstract theoretical professor in contracts in a gigantic class. Knowing full well she will ask us the basic contracts exam hypos I still have to learn the main stuff. This cd set is wonderful. Epstein may not tell the funny jokes that Freer does but he certainly makes the stuff easy to learn, easy to understand - especially the definitions and what to look for in exams mentioning which fact patterns professor love to trick students with.

Easy to use cd's that tell you which topic is being discussed. One cd gives a full outline - just print away. I think I will go ahead and buy the rest of the series. As a student, I'm on a budget but these actually do a very good job supplementing you studies. I recommend them over all the Emmanuel books out there (which I also have) b/c as a 1L you will get tired of reading and this is when you just sit back and absorb the info.

4-0 out of 5 stars Perfectly adequate
First thing.Let's set expectations.This is a five-hour lecture.First-year contracts is a six-semester-hour course.For every hour in class, if you spend two hours studying, then that means it is supposed to take 18 hours per week, times 15 weeks to learn contracts.That's 270 hours of preparation to sit for one or two exams.You are not going to "learn contracts" from this five-hour lecture.You should not expect that.What this lecture IS, however, is an excellent summary review of contracts.It is probably true that you might get the same information by reading the detailed table of contents from your casebook.(Except that the lecturer explains each heading and gives you a brief review of the rules).So if you are looking for an easy way to learn contracts without having to read your casebook, then I agree with the other rater, don't waste your money.Why did I buy this?I drive 7 hours every weekend.That's 3.5 hours of NPR every Friday evening, and 3.5 hours of law lectures every Sunday afternoon.What has this lecture done for me?Before starting my class, it gave me the lay of the land in contracts, so that when I began learning contracts, I had the perspective of how all the material fits together.That aided me with memory retention as I aquired the content.Second, during the middle of each semester, I gave it another listen, which helped me keep the perspective.Finally, I gave another listen before each final, which reinforced what I had learned.When you find yourself viewing your notes and outline in your head while the lecturer is speaking, it helps reinforce your memory recall, and it builds your confidence.I can tell you also that during my finals, as I was answering a few questions, I could hear Epstein's Texan accent blasting in my head, and yes, it did help me recall a few of the principles.No, this is not a 5-hour short-cut to learn a year-long contracts course.Nor will you become instantly rich or fluent in Spanish.But if you do read your book and attend your class, and you have dead time to listen to this lecture, it will help.

1-0 out of 5 stars Where's the Beef
His voice has a kind of southern/Texas accent, but it is understandble. He speaks slowly--too slowly. His audio apparently followed an organizational style consistent with his books. His course organization is different than I am getting in a first year course taught using the Farnsworth casebook.

However, I have taken 3/4 of a year course already and I am truly stunned about this audio for one reason--no content. I gave up on this audio after listening to 40% of it, because it said nothing. I might as well have spent my time just reading the section headers for my casebook for all the useful information being imparted.

I know that someone is going to write this audio should be for review only, not learning the subject. I think the audio should be for review _and_ learning. This audio simply fails on both counts, for example the cases/hypos are infrequent and are so sparsely detailed that I could not follow what he was trying to say about them.

The set of CDs was a real waste of money. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet
This is a very readable introduction to contracts.It is quite short, and I used it to give myself some basic familiarity in advance of beginning the class.

5-0 out of 5 stars It Really is an Enjoyable Read!
I didn't believe that a law book could be fun either, but this one really is.Clear, concise, and (amazingly enough) entertaining, it explains the major concepts of Contract Law in a way that never threatened to drive me to drink or to sleep.

5-0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal book for *anyone* interested in the law of contracts
I am a failed law student. I went the first year and quit because I didn't enjoy the experience and knew the law profession was not one I wished to join. However, I came across, and kept, a few *phenomenal* books while I was in law school, books written in layman's terms that give a wonderful understanding of an area of the law, and this book is one.

Many of us don't have the time or money to invest in a personal lawyer to answer any legal questions. This book serves the role nicely. With its simple language and highlights of the major points of contract law, it will give good direction when seeking legal council.

What this book will not do is give you everything you need to pass a law school class. I know because I tried. But for the semester I did care, this book supplemented my text and the UCC very well and helped me get an A.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Overview of Concepts
The book delivers what it promises: a very succinct overview of Contracts law. I found it immensely helpful in understanding major themes in Contracts, and the book addresses many of the most popular cases found in the casebooks. My one complaint is that Prof. Chirelstien is sometimes a bit verbose at times. It often appears as if he looses sight of his audience (law students primarily) and tries to impress his colleagues in academia with his vocabulary and academic wittiness. I can get that in class from my own professors. That said, I think the book a very helpful guide to law students who are still fuzzy about the concepts after reading the casebook and going to lecture.

1-0 out of 5 stars OK...But not for a law students
This book was ok. It won't help the 1L law students looking for an aid to help them supplement their readings.This book is just a glorified canned case book.Highly recommended for those CONSIDERING law school and want to read about contracts BEFORE they start school.Once your in law school, look for another source. ...

Product Description
Read this book before you do your next tech deal. Here's why:Executives are often called upon to write letters of intent (LOIs), term sheets, and deal proposals before "bringing in the lawyers." These documents are almost more important than the actual contract, because they establish the framework of the deal. The wrong phrasing or an omitted point can result in a flawed deal, frustrating negotiations, a loss of leverage, and unnecessary legal expense. This short book (30 pp.) will you help you avoid those pitfalls, by enumerating issues common to many LOIs, term sheets and proposals and suggesting what to do - and not to do - when drafting these plain-language legal documents. It's packed with dozens of specific, easy-to-understand tips.The result? You'll save money and have better legal documents more quickly.Author Jonathan Handel is an entertainment and technology attorney. He is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School. ...

Product Description
Finally! A plain-English presentation of the basic legal concepts of government contract law for professionals at any stage in their careers. Until now, anyone in the procurement field has had to trudge through dense and complex texts written in hard-to-followlegalesein their quest to understand procurement law. With Understanding Government Contract Law, they finally have a source of clear and concise explanations of the legal principles involved in government contract law, written by an authority on the subject.

Part I of the book focuses on the unique problems facing each of the parties to a government contract the contract officer and the contractor and offers insight to the many roles played by the contract officer in the procurement process.

Part II describes why and how the government contract is different from commercial contracts.

Part III explores the ins and outs of a government contract lawsuit. The author presents key legal principles of government contract law by:
-Stating a legal principle
-Specifying where in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) that principle is found
-Offering the rationale, context, and any public policy behind the principle
-Describing, with case law examples, situations where the government applied the law correctly and situations where the government came to that conclusion incorrectly
The structure of Understanding Government Contract Law is modeled after the FAR, the foundation of federal procurement, making it familiar and practical for both students and professionals. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Textbook Especially for Federal Contract Administrators
This textbook is definitely at the level of a law school student but also appropriate for contract administrators in the field of federal contracting.Understanding Government Contract Law provides some information that you can't get in the Federal Acquisition Regulation, namely how to sue the Federal Government.But hope you don't have to sue the Federal Government because the costs are onerous.

Terrance O'Conner describes the role of the Contracting Officer better than anybody else in my opinion.He desribes the ways in which a contracting officer is a Judge, Sheriff and Plaintiff.Certainly the nation needs lots more contracting officers.This is an area of tremendous expected job growth.

Many books on government contracting explain types of contracts in the two basic categories of fixed price and cost-reimbursement, which is correct.O'Conner focuses on the legal basis for contract formation, again necessary for contracting officers and contract administrators to know.One of the things that make government contracts different from commercial contracts is that the federal government can always get out of the contract if it perceives doing so to be in its best interests.This is well covered in the text.

I found this to be a highly readable text in a very dry and challenging area of the law.I recommend it for aspiring contracting officers and contract administrators.

There was a slight mixup with UPS, I think it was a new driver because if I'm unavailable they usually leave it at the office on the first attempt.However, they did leave the book at the office on the second attempt the next day; and I was still able to keep up with my classmates without any trouble.The book was in excellent condition and was very helpful in my course. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Most excellent textbook
I highly recommend this book on contracts.I am taking a paralegal "Contracts" class and have completed the course except for the final exam.

Definitions of legalisms are very clear and are included in the book (though you will find you must get the paperback version of Black's Law Dictionary), the index to the book is quite useful.Examples are always given and are clear.

The book will also act as a future reference for me when I am analyzing a contract.Each chapter concludes with a "paralegal checklist" that summarizes the subject at hand so you can double-check the contract you are reading to see that everything is correct.

I believe this textbook is part of a new breed of textbooks.I found, for a parallel example, that Michael Sullivan's book on Algebra and Trigonometry is a miracle of thoroughness and clarity, considering the subject, and that this book is a "miracle" of clarity, again considering it is a legal textbook, and the subject.

4-0 out of 5 stars Well organized, but needs more examples
I am in a love/hate relationship with this book!On the up side, it is very well organized.In fact, it reads like a really, really good set of notes.On the down side, although it is well organized, it ONLY reads like a really, really good set of notes.

I am presently using this book in an online paralegal course and find myself going online constantly to hunt for examples or explanations of the definitions.It would really help for the authors to provide more examples and maybe even answers to selected questions.

On the other hand, if you are trying to plow through a wordy text and need a good, organized synopsis of the material, this is the book for you.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad
It's an okay book.A source of frustration with it is the frequent use of exercise questions without then explaining the answers.That may work in traditional classroom where class discussion and a teacher are involved, but it does not work for the lone reader.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good for paralegals too
This book is considered a text, but I've given it to my paralegal staff to use as a brush-up/refresher course in contract law.It's well written and covers the essentials of the area in a solid progression of topics. ... Read more

Read a review regarding this book and it is excellent.The class is challenging and the book is an easy read.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Examples Book
I have found this to be interesting reading on the law of contracts.As with all the examples series, it is easy to read, has examples and questions that can be used to judge your grasp of the information with explanations.

2-0 out of 5 stars Just OK
This book was very elementary. It was no substitute for class notes or the casebook.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide
This book is written very well. The concepts are laid out in a cohesive manner. This book is especially helpful if your Contracts professor is very scant or unclear with his own explanations.

4-0 out of 5 stars a great supplement to own
I have purchased all the E&E for my law school classes, but I will try to limit my review to the Contracts book.I find myself relying on this book to help me understand concepts that are somewhat unclear to me from just reading the casebook.It helps clarify key points in layman's terms, and it provides example questions to make sure that you have the ability to apply the concepts that you are learning.

I recommend this book to any first-year law student who would like to use supplements in their studies in law school. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Why don't we just study from Gilberts?
Short review while I study contracts out of this book.The book is poorly written, where oftentimes the question of law is presented before the facts.Facts, though not whatyou should take with you, focus you to the event.Law with no facts is meaningless, and we might as well read out of the Restatement book.Sometimes the cases are pointlessly long, sometimes elusively short.Always confusing, never well written.Why put in 1st restatement when we are on the 3rd?Why tell the story out of order?Why give the procedural history before the facts?My questions go unanswered.However, as Contracts go, some of the cases they choose are interesting.Imagine if every single case was about breach of renter's agreement, or arbitration clause.At least there are some fun wheeling and dealings in here.

4-0 out of 5 stars Classic Volume
It is a very rare thing when when words coil around your soul and leave you breathless and clear-eyed. Few books have the power or brilliance to be transforming, and even fewer are brave enough to launch entirely new ways of thinking about literature.

And then comes "Studies in Contract Law: Sixth Edition," the newest book from renowned legal philosopher Murphy Et Al. A quick glance at its faux-leather cover and embossed title and you might cast it aside as yet another heavy, meandering read. But, as is often true, the adventurous will be rewarded with delights heretofore unknown to modern readers.

"Studies" covers a startling range of topics, from the high-powered world of business to the disintegration of families throughout various eras of American history. It even briefly delves into poetry, quoting what it describes as "one of the delights of legal literature," namely the immortal Professor Brainerd Currie's "Aberlone, Rose Of." In the discussion of a presumed barren cow on page 490, the recitation of lines like "Ah me!--Ah moo! / Respectively their quidsome balm / How mournfully they chew!" grips us with longing and wistfulness.

The frenetic pace of the text is filled with endless cliffhangers; nervous readers should take warning. Will Roscoe ever find his true father? Will the theft of Mrs. Hooper's gardenias ever be solved? Will Alaska Northern Development, Inc prevail over Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. regarding the applicability of the parol evidence rule of the Uniform Commercial Code, section 2-202, codified as AS 45.02-202? Subplots and intrigue twist throughout the book until page 1121, where a single sentence rings as sharp and true as any in history.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." "Call me Ishmael." "To be or not be." And now, from the sublime mind of Murphy Et Al: "The idea which ruled this case--that where a person for a consideration paid to him by another agrees to pay a sum of money to a third person, a stranger to the transaction, the latter does not thereby become possessed of the absolute right to the benefit of the promise, nor until he accepts the same in some way; and that while he is ignorant of the promise, or thereafter, at any time before he assents to the transaction, it may be rescinded,--we must admit is well supported in the books."

If the poetry of this sentence does not immediately seize you, consider yourself a hopeless wreck on the shores of The New Literature. ... Read more

Product Description
An Introduction to the Law of Contracts is now out in the 4th edition. It is still carefully organized around a comprehensive road map that takes the reader through the 6 steps of contract law, but the new edition includes added benefits. There are updated cases and examples, and each chapter ends with review questions to help reinforce the theories addressed in each chapter. The chapters also end with a checklist that helps to highlight the key concepts for the reader. The first of 6 steps investigates what body of law applies to the transaction. The next step addresses the formation of a contract, offer and acceptance. Step 3 develops limitations on the parties freedom to contract, and concepts such as infancy, illegality, duress, and unconscionability are explored. The next step looks at the plaintiff?s allegation of the defendant?s breach. Step 5 organizes the defendant?s responses to the plaintiff?s allegation of breach, categorizing it into one of two basic types that is then further explored. The final step develops the plaintiff?s remedies for the defendant?s breach of contract. Paralegal students and professionals alike will benefit from this thorough and highly readable book that is completely current and has a focus on retention. ... Read more

Product Description
Jill Poole's best-selling Casebook on Contract Law provides a clear and well-structured explanation of the principles and rules of contract law through a comprehensive selection of case law, addressing all aspects encountered on undergraduate courses. The coverage in this new edition has been revised to incorporate all recent significant decisions and judgments made by the House of Lords and the Court of Appeal.

Succinct author commentary focuses the reader on the key elements within the extracts, while thought-provoking questions are posed throughout to develop a more in-depth appreciation of the subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid content, good value
Having been practicing for several years in corporate finance law, this book was a great means of beefing up on basic contract principles which one tends to lose sight of in the fray of all the business details subsuming large transactions.

I'm not sure what Hillman's trick is here, whether it's the super thin pages or what, but this benign looking soft cover really packs a punch.He also has a sense of humour, and while Jerry Seinfeld he is not, his sidebar quips are a welcome gloss and even had me chuckling aloud once or twice.

I recommend this book, highly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful
I've had a chance to check out many contract law supplements, and many well-known ones at that (Emanuel, Nutshell, Gilbert). I think this is the best of the bunch. Very readable (the author even manages to be funny - who thought contracts could be amusing?) and it really helps you understand the material. The footnotes are fantastic as well.

If you can only afford one extra supplement for contracts, I think this is the one you should purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must buy
The best hornbook I've had for any course this year. This will improve your grade.

2-0 out of 5 stars Short and easy to read primer
This is a nice, short, easy-to-read primer on Contracts from an expert in the field. Not too technical and written for law students or for someone interested in Contract law alone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
This is the single best law supplement I've come across so far.Throughout my first semester of 1L at a T14 school, I concentrated on this book as much as (and probably more than) my casebook.I finished with an A, and I credit my understanding to Hillman's hornbook.

Easy breezy reading, easy to carry, but goes into plenty of depth.

If your professor teaches from Hillman's casebook, then this is a must-have.If not, I still recommend it. ... Read more
