LAW 832S Contract Theory Seminar 2.0-3.0 Credits

This course is designed to get students thinking more creatively and deeply about the ideas animating contract law and policy. While the first-year Contracts course is about mastering the technical aspects and doctrines of contract law, this course is about taking those skills to another level. The overarching course goal is to consider and discuss the ideas which undergird and give life to contract law. The course will cover the basics of contract theory, surveying some different ideas about “the grand unifying theme of contract,” examining the strengths and weaknesses of these different ideas and theories of particular doctrines in contract law (this could include consideration, promissory estoppel, efficient breach, and/or special problems of form contracts).
