Contract Law 2020 Edition

This handbook guides attorneys through the process of creating, formatting, and modifying contracts.

This reference guide details the fundamentals of contract formation, modification, and performance as well as more complex contract issues, such as disputes and litigation, assignment and delegation, breach of contract and nonperformance, and void contracts. Other topics include the statute of frauds, contract formation under Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code, promissory estoppel, the parol-evidence rule, economic loss, equitable remedies, and warranties, disclaimers, and limitations. This handbook also contains numerous sample language provisions to assist attorneys in drafting contacts, including multiple clauses for employment agreements, a sample merger clause, several sample express warranties, and adapted jury instructions.
