CONTRACTS, Law 5034
MW 2:30-4:20 p.m., Room 202
PROFESSOR M. THOMAS ARNOLD
During the first week of class, we will be exploring several issues that are core to an understanding of contract law. These include: 1) What is a promise? 2) How is a promise distinguished or different from other manifestations that a person could make? 3) How does contract law determine what a person “intends”? Please keep these questions in mind as you read carefully the first two assignments.
