Course Description



This course continues the exploration of essential contractual and commercial rules and concepts introduced in 1st year Contracts. It focuses primarily on the law of sales under Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code, including consideration of contract formation, the parole evidence rule, statute of frauds, warranties, performance, and remedies. The work in this course will involve close and sustained attention to the statutory language of Article 2. In addition, throughout our consideration of Article 2, we will examine how this modern statute alters (or maintains) the established rules of common law contracts. Advanced Contracts is thus relevant not only to those students with a special interest in commercial law, but to any student who wishes to reinforce and deepen his or her understanding of the foundational concepts, principles, and critical rules of general contract law.
