Gilbert's for Contracts

Postby echooo23 » Wed Feb 06, 2013 3:03 pm

Most recent edition from 2002. Outdated?

If so, can you recommend another outline supplement for Ks? I'm currently reading Chirelstein (eh) and bought Acing Contracts but haven't received it yet.

Don't know about the Gilbert's, but Chirelstein + Acing together should be fine for covering most concepts. I bought Lexis Understanding Contracts too and didn't find it useful at all.

To be honest, it is fine. Practically nothing has changed in contracts in 50 years except for some UCC stuff and EULA stuff. If you get an old professor (most contracts professors are), then you will be learning completely from the restatement anyway. The old addition is fine. Contracts and property have so many old English cases in them from 1700 - 1800s. Also never forget the old "High as a Georgia Pine" case.

The only recent changes to contract law (IIRC) are related to clickwrap/internet issues. I doubt your prof would test on that, but I'm unsure as to whether the 2002 edition would make mention of them. I would say buy the old version and look over your notes for things related to the internet.
