Contracts teachers are asked to complete a brief online survey to help the planning and execution of a symposium Washington Law Review is preparing to host on the exciting new book, Contracts in the Real World: Stories of Popular Contracts and Why They Matter, by Lawrence A. Cunningham of George Washington University (published by Cambridge University Press in 2012).
This innovative text embraces a modern, narrative approach to contract law, exploring how cases ripped from the headlines of recent years often hinge on fundamental principles extracted from the classic cases that appear in contracts casebooks. Such an approach suggests new ways to imagine modern casebooks. In addition to an article by Prof. Cunningham, the WLR will publish in its December 2013 issue a half dozen pieces by many luminaries and notables, including:
Charles Knapp (NYU/Hastings)
Brian Bix (Minnesota)
Erik Gerding (Colorado)
Jake Linford (Florida State)
Jennifer Taub (Vermont)
To help these scholars and WLR editors with this effort, please fill out the online survey today!
