I read this book after I'd finished outlining for my contracts class.

I read this book after I'd finished outlining for my contracts class. It's a really short (I read it in a couple hours) but I think it explains all of the key concepts really well. I used several supplements to study for my final but surprisingly, I think this one was the best. It highlights the rules and how to use them without giving absurd examples. This is a great way to familiarize yourself with the major concepts of contract law in a most cursory but enjoyable way. This is a page turner rather than a dull tome filled with endless cases to read. You will want to augment a real case book with the valuable discussion found in these pages.

Excellent book for understanding Contracts Law. It briefly presents the most famous cases that are generally taught in all law schools and it provides excellent arguments for both sides. Therefore, a student can learn to argue for both sides. It is the book that every student needs the last week before exam. Personally, I read "Principles of Contracts Law" by Robert Hillman before trying Chirelstein and Chirelstein is much better. 7 people found this helpful.

The concepts of contract law are often presented by law school professors as mysterious and lofty

The concepts of contract law are often presented by law school professors as mysterious and lofty. Professor Chirelstein makes them easy to understand. As my first year contracts professor put it when speaking of the author of this book: "O. .you mean the Great Chirelstein. And indeed he is! The best book on contracts ever. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 18 years ago. This book is pure genius. Professor Chirelstien taught me Contracts at Columbia Law School in 1997, and his book amazingly explains the law of contracts in a basic form that is as useful for first-year law students as it would be informative for anyone wanting to learn about contracts.

Chirelstein summarizes all of the common law principles of contracts in this book, and I'm pretty sure it would be pretty readable for pedestrians. Plus, there's a part about Donald Duck shaking hands with a teeny tiny Mickey Mouse living in regular Mickey Mouse's brain, or something, and that's pretty good. Plus, it's, like, really short. I don't think it would work without the highlighting, but with the highlighting, it's really great.

Chirelstein first joined Columbia Law School in 1954 to work on the Federal Income Tax Project under Dean William C. Warren. He then joined the government as an attorney in the . Department of the Treasury and later taught at Rutgers School of Law and Yale Law School. Two of his textbooks, Concepts and Case Analysis in the Law of Contracts and Federal Income Taxation: A Law Student’s Guide to the Leading Cases and Concepts, have guided generations of future lawyers through the complexities of the law. A third,Cases and Materials on Corporate Finance, opened the way to interdisciplinary analysis of corporate law.

The Third Edition of Concepts and Case Analysis in the Law of Contracts is a brief primer that offers first-year law students a reliable overview of the major themes and leading cases in the field. This Contracts primer is vastly uncluttered - one that picks up the main themes in the first-year Contracts course, together with related cases.

I read this book after I'd finished outlining for my contracts class. It's a really short (I read it in a couple hours) but I think it explains all of the key concepts really well. I used several supplements to study for my final but surprisingly, I think this one was the best. It highlights the rules and how to use them without giving absurd examples. It's easy to read and I actually ended up tabbing it and using it during my final - something I couldn't do with my other supplements.

I have read the first few chapters and loving it. It cannot be used as a primary textbook certainly, but I would highly recommend it to sharpen understanding after you read the main text. It really helps solidify understanding of some iconic cases like Hamer v. Sidway, Peerless, etc.
Bremar
Easy to understand and very condensed. Be careful though, some professors have their own interpretations of what certain cases stand for, so do not take this book as gospel.

When I was new to hornbooks, I didn't understand the differences between the various hornbooks. What I didn't quite understand is that for a given subject, at least as a given professor teaches it, there will be one hornbook that is more helpful than any other. For Contracts, for me, it was this hornbook.

very interesting well written book. helps weave together different areas of contract law into a cohesive unit, with many interesting points by the author you wouldn't find in a regular supplement. i wish i had time to read it again.

This is one of the few books that someone should consider reading before law school. Written in a fluid style, the book provides an adequate overview of what could be called "Contracts' Greatest Hits." While it is probably not sufficient to rely on for exams, it is a great introduction to legal thinking generally.
This book is intended to be read in a short period of time right around finals. It does a great job of tying the concepts together and giving you a refresher on the important parts of a contracts course.
