Contracts...

Postby nelaw2010 » Mon Dec 19, 2011 10:51 pm

I'm using the following books:

Contracts: Cases and Doctrine, Fourth Edition, Randy E. Barnett
Contract Law: Selected Source Materials Annotated, 2011; Burton & Eisenburg

Can anyone recommend good supplements for these? I heard Chirlestein (sp) is good. Also the Blum E&E.

Does anyone know which might be better given the casebook I'm using?

Thanks again!

E&E isn't bad but it's really wordy, the glannon E&E's are much better at getting to the point

I honestly do not recommend using supplements. I know everyone uses them; I personally dislike them.

I wasn't a big fan of the E&E, definitely not as good as Glannon.

Chirelstein was great. Very clear and concise so you don't have to spend too much time on a topic.

If you had to pick one -- E&E or Crunchtime?

What is the difference? Are the hypos not as helpful in the E&E?

I think it depends on your situation. Acing contracts is really helpful for constructing an outline/checklisting. I like (and my Prof who used the Barnett casebook recomended) "Concepts and Case Analysis in the Law of Contracts" by Marvin Chirelstein. It's pretty succinct, but informative.

Blum's E&E actually probably prevented me from failing Contracts today.

On the other hand, I probably got a C in Contracts. So. Not exactly fist pumping for Blum either.
