Course Information and First Assignment for Contracts 7 – Professor Todd Rakoff – Fall 2011: There will be one casebook and one source materials supplement for this course: (1) Steven J. Burton, “Principles of Contract Law” – Third Edition (2006), and (2) Steven J. Burton & Melvin A. Eisenberg (eds.), “Contract Law: Selected Source Materials” – 2011 Edition. (They are available at the Law School Coop.) For our first meeting on Wednesday, August 31, please read pages 1-16 in the casebook and the provisions of the Restatement of Contracts (which can be found in the supplement) that are referred to in those pages. I would appreciate your not bringing laptops (or comparable electronic devices) to class this semester.
