Symposium on Contracts in the Real World
posted by Lawrence Cunningham
A dozen law profs are about to provide reviews of a new book intended to help thousands of students, and scores of scholars, relate old-fashioned contract law to deals in the news. Over three days–October 16-18, 2012–reviews will be posted here of Contracts in the Real World: Stories of Popular Contracts and Why They Matter.
You will hear from some of the best teachers of Contracts in the country–along with at least one student–as they explain their encounter with this book, which highlights the beauty, majesty and complexity of the common law of bargains. I am honored to introduce this amazing group of prawfs and am grateful that they have taken time from their busy schedules to join us for this on-line symposium.
