Business Law and Contracts

This course explores the nature and enforceability of contracts and bargains between and among businesses and individuals. What constitutes a valid contract offer between companies and/or individuals? How is a contract accepted? When should a business or individual be legally excused from performing a contract obligation? When should a contractual obligation not be excused? And what are the remedies available for the breach of a contract? We will look at a number of contractual disputes, including contracts involving sales of businesses, real estate, employment, retail sales and performance of services. Prerequistes: None JD candidates may not enroll since the course duplicates work previously completed in the Contracts class. LLM candidates are invited to enroll. The course is co-listed with Kellogg School of Management (BLAW 917). This course is taught on the Fall quarter schedule.
