U.S. Contract Law (LAWS 4903)

Course Info

The subject matter and coverage of this course is approximately the same as the subject matter and coverage of first-year Contracts—the formation of a contract; problems of offer and acceptance; consideration; the question of contract breach; damages and remedies for a breach—as abbreviated and modified to reflect that it (a) is limited to foreign students who are candidates for the LL.M. in U.S. Legal Studies and (b) consists of 3 (not 5) credit hours.
