Help w/ K
« on: January 15, 2008, 09:27:33 AM »
Contracts (K) is driving me crazy, there are way too many things to consider at any given moment/point, & the prof. refuses to teach us any theory--he presented 7, each with two-three paradoxes. I have a hornbook, its not really helpful but gives decent history of assumpsit & other analytically useless nonsense. How does one begin to think or understand analysis of K law?

I know this doesn't really answer your question but have you looked into obtaining the E&E for Contracts? My professor was very much like how yours sounds but thanks to that book I got an A on the fall exam and am understanding things much better now.... its not the greatest book in the world but it definately helped me look past how needlessly complicated my professor tried to make the course

Contracts is, relatively, fairly easy to organize. If you're having trouble putting it all into a structure, start checking out supplements, BarBri year one materials, or something that will help you to understand that organization.

I second the E&E. It helped me out.

I think doing a flowchart will help in terms of organizing. When the facts get screwy, just be really methodical and organize the analysis one little step at a time.
