In Problems in Contract Law: Cases and Materials, Ninth Edition, by Charles L. Knapp, Nathan M. Crystal, and Harry G. Prince, a balance of traditional and contemporary cases reflect the development and complexity of contract law. Explanatory notes and text place classic and contemporary cases in their larger legal context, while questions and problem exercises bridge theory and practice. Adaptable for instructors with different teaching techniques, this successful book includes various perspectives and contractual settings, and offers a highly intelligent, contemporary treatment of contract law. It can easily be used in teaching by traditional case analysis, through problem-based instruction, or using theoretical inquiry.

New to the Ninth Edition:

  • Seven new cases that reflect advances in or improved statements of contract law
  • Two restored cases (Kirksey v. Kirksey and Hill v. Jones) that provide valuable perspectives on fundamental areas of contract law
  • Eight new problems (including seven net additions and one replacement) to provide more review options for teachers and students and to add contemporary fact patterns
  • A new, two-color design featuring interesting photographs illustrating people and places discussed in some of the cases
  • Editing of note and text material to reduce length without affecting coverage
  • Reorganization of text and comment material to focus comments primarily on historical developments, allowing professors flexibility in assigning or deleting comments
  • Student accessibility to deleted cases from prior editions through Connected Casebook, allowing professors the further flexibility of continuing to easily assign cases for which they have a particular preference

Professors and students will benefit from:

    • Flexible application for professors with various teaching methodologies: traditional, problem, theoretical, and practical
    • A mixture of classic and contemporary cases
    • The authors' emphasis on accessibility of the material--rejecting a hide-the-ball approach
    • Review questions at the end of each chapter that are primarily designed for students to perform self-assessments of their grasp of the material. Answers with explanations are included in an appendix within the book.
