The new edition includes a great number of new principal cases and case notes, including extensive coverage of pertinent materials in the new restatement of restitution and up to date materials on "rolling contracts."

Contract Law and Its Application, Ninth Edition introduces first year law students to common law reasoning, legal interpretation, lawyering and legal institutions, through basic American contract law, presented in relatively brief free-standing units that may be sequenced as the instructor prefers. It focuses on contract interpretation as a primary means to resolve a wide range of doctrinal and practical contract problems. The Ninth Edition's core remains the full traditional canon of American contract law: the classic common law cases, UCC Article 2 (Sales) and the Restatement, Second, Contracts, in each case with updated and current questions and notes emphasizing the application of that doctrine in the 21st century. The Ninth Edition highlights the expanding use of arbitration clauses in both commercial and consumer contracts, and the ferment in restitution law reflected in recent academic work and the promulgation of the Restatement, Third, Restitution. In addition, the Ninth Edition includes a new Appendix II providing easy reference to all relevant sections of the Restatement, Second, Contracts, and carries forward the Eighth Edition's Appendix I with the relevant sections of the UCC, thus obviating students' need for a statutory supplement. As with prior editions, the Ninth Edition includes comparative law materials, indicating alternative approaches to common problems in other legal systems.

This best-selling supplement contains materials that can be used with any contracts casebook. Recent editions have received a significant makeover while retaining the basic, popular features. Most notably, the supplement now includes short annotations that introduce each selection. These annotations put each selection in context by explaining its origins, central purpose(s), scope of application, and current legal status. Students will better understand the selection's point, purpose, and content; and teachers will have less need to explain an assigned selection's context. In addition, the authors have thoroughly updated the content. It includes excerpts from the European Union's 2011 Directive on Consumer Rights and the European Commission's proposal for a European sales law. The new annotations, conjoined with its inclusiveness, currency, and convenience, provide a significant comparative advantage over competing volumes and materials.

The Seventh Edition of Contracts retains the distinctive character & the richness of previous editions. The standard of excellence set by this book over many years is due in larger measure to its "teachability." Developments in the law & in legal education have seemed to call for expanded treatment of some issues. This edition continues to track the increasing relevance of contract to at-will employment, the relationship of contract & tort (notably: the place of the misrepresentation & negligence torts in bargaining transactions), & the expanding technique of "implied" contract.

The included study aids are Contracts in a Nutshell, Exam Pro on Contracts, Objective and Acing Contracts. In the Ninth Edition of Studies in Contract Law, Ian Ayres and Greg Klass have continued their work of streamlining, updating and supplementing this classic casebook. The new edition includes extensive discussion of the Draft Restatement (Third) of Consumer Contracts. There are new cases on telemarketing, good faith, the perfect tender rule, warranties and reliance, half-truths, fraud liability between contracting parties, class arbitration, adequate assurances, mitigation, mental anguish, intentional interference, and personal services contracts. And the authors have added three new drafting exercises to the many practice problems that the book has always included. This edition makes some structural changes to the chapter on remedies to make it more accessible to students. The discussion now begins with general principles, such as the choice between damages and specific performance, efficient breach, and the foreseeability, mitigation and certainty rules. It then addresses seller and buyer remedies, under the UCC and common law, followed by a discussion of special topics such as personal service contracts, liquidated damages, and recovery for nonpecuniary damages. The new edition also includes a new section on fraud liability between contract parties--a topic that usually falls in the gap between Torts and Contracts. And the authors have integrated materials from the arbitration chapter into the rest of the book, and added new section on the Supreme Court's recent class arbitration jurisprudence. Ayres has now recorded more than 90 contract law videos that will be freely available for viewing on Coursera.com and YouTube (search for "Ian Ayres Contracts"). These videos are largely free-standing discussions of individual cases from the casebook and can be used as supplemental lectures or to "flip the classroom." Ayres has also recorded more than 30 videos, also freely available on these platform (search for "Ayres Law Students toolkits"), covering basic legal concepts (e.g., rules vs. standards) and techniques (e.g., how to brief a case) that might be useful for first-year students.

Contracts: Cases and Doctrine, Sixth Edition, features a mix of lightly-edited classic and contemporary cases that stresses current contract doctrine along with the essential lawyering skill of case analysis—how to sift through the facts of the case to discern the prevailing rules and theory. Randy Barnett and Nate Oman’s innovative text introduces each case and provides the historical background of the iconic cases that make the study of contract law engaging. Study Guide questions help students identify salient issues as they read each case. Judicial biographies of each judge provides additional context. Key Features of the New Edition: The 6th Edition has been edited to make it even more modular and therefore easier for professors to select which doctrines to cover. The introductory materials have been shortened to permit a speedier entry to whichever basic doctrine the professor chooses to begin with. A new section on public policy defenses has been added. Recent developments involving arbitration agreements in the wake of the Supreme Court’s AT&T Mobility case are also covered. In addition, roughly a dozen new cases have been substituted, chosen for their interesting facts or their proven pedagogical usefulness. As always, every effort is made to provide students with background materials on the litigation, such as new judicial biographies and excerpts from recently published scholarship dealing with the cases covered. New cases include: Jordan v. Knafel Arnold Porter v. Fuqua Industries Nguyen v. Barnes & Noble Inc. Also, in keeping with the book’s focus on the “classic” cases we have included some iconic cases missing from earlier editions, including: Masterson v. Sine Security Stove & Manfacturing Co. v. American Railway Express Lefkowitz v. Great Minneapolis Surplus Store Lawrence v. Fox Harris v. Watson
