This book uses samples of sales contracts and problems drawn from actual case files to engage students in the role of a lawyer involved in a sales transaction. It is aimed at upper division students who are tired of reading and briefing cases and are interested in what lawyers really do. The text includes more narrative discussion than many texts, so students do not have to struggle to learn the basic rules. Instead, students can focus on developing proficiency in reading statutes and solving problems. Students use cases the way lawyers use cases: to solve problems. The problems in this text are somewhat more complex than those found in most teaching texts. This book is unique due to its emphasis on deconstructing statutes and using a variety of visual aids to help students become experts in the application of the law to facts to solve a problem. In particular, it uses numerous diagrams to help students deconstruct statutes and to help students organize their analysis of sales problems.
This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.
