Global Issues in Contract Law is designed to allow the introduction of international, comparative, and transnational legalissues into the basic Contracts course. In addition to providing guidance on the status and scope of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and other international authorities, the book provides internationally oriented materials on basic contract law topics that can be folded into the basic course.

It covers:

  • contract formation issues
  • formal requirements
  • ambiguity of contract terms
  • parol evidence under domestic law and under the CISG
  • "battle of the forms"
  • irrevocable offers
  • performance and breach
  • comparative and CISG approaches to remedies

Global Issues in Contract Law is designed to inform, never to overburden, the basic Contracts course. Carefully drafted problem and note materials - and a teacher's manual - make the book self-contained, so that neither the student nor the instructor should feel the need to engage in extensive outside reading. The teacher's manual also includes detailed suggestions on how to use the materials and where to insert or substitute them in any of the leading Contracts casebooks.
