CONTRACT LAW FOR PARALEGALS, 2/e fully prepares paralegals for all facets of contract preparation, including ethical, practical, and professional issues. Fully updated for current case law, it thoroughly covers modern e-contracts, and presents relevant new examples such as health club and cell phone contracts. It combines a strong foundation in essential principles with practical insight into the issues paralegals face in researching, drafting, and interpreting contracts. Students build skills and portfolios through many drafting exercises, including the creation of complete contracts for equipment, real estate, and business sales. They also build critical thinking skills through assignments ranging from attorney briefings to Critical Legal Thinking Cases. Students will find up-to-date career information, sidebars illuminating working paralegals’ real-world experiences, and extensive reference resources, including a detailed glossary and extensive UCC excerpts.
