This is a basic introductory course in contract law. Topics include consideration and other bases for enforcing promises, the bargaining process (including precontractual liability), the requirement of a writing (statute of frauds), policing the bargain for unfairness, remedies for breach of contract, performance and breach, and failure of basic assumptions (mistake, impracticability, frustration).
