LAW 403 - Contracts for Foreign Lawyers

This is an introductory contracts law course that adds a practical perspective to a traditional first-year Contracts course. This course is open only to LL.M. students. Students will cover the fundamentals of contract formation, enforceability, defenses to enforceability, interpretation, performance, conditions, third party rights, damages, and other remedies.  In addition to covering the main U.S. contract law topics, students will also examine how contract law principles affect real-world legal practice.  Students will be graded by their class performance and a final exam.
