This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Aug 23, Meredith Holley rated it really liked it Shelves: I kind of love this book. When there’s a book that tells me what I’m actually supposed to know about the law, it gets a special place in my heart. At first, I hated this book and was totally baffled by the way the case summaries were arranged within the chapters.
Then, someone reminded me to use my handy-dandy coloring scheme and it all became clear. Here’s the thing, for all of you who I’m sure will want to be going off to law school in the near future: Everyone studies di I kind of love this book. Everyone studies differently, I guess, and I’m a really visual learner, so this might not work universally, but the best advice I got before going to law school was to color code the cases.
You choose different colors for facts, issue, holding, and reasoning maybe procedural history, too, but I just lumped that in with factsand then you use different colors for underlining. In this book, it was like magic.
“Teaching Contracts” by Marvin Chirelstein
You could do the same thing with regular highlighters, obviously, but the crayons don’t smear. You can thank me later. 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. View all 18 comments. Sep 08, Alex MacMillan rated it it was ok Shelves: I think my professor assigned this for the entire class to read because it’s more efficient to spend six hours reading this than for everyone to individually spend six hours with him in office hours.

This gave me the big picture overview of the scope of my introductory contracts course. I’m definitely better able to follow along and contribute to lectures. Having quick previews of the most infamous contracts cases prior to reading them also speeds up my case briefing. However, the chapter discus I think my professor assigned this for the entire class to read because it’s more efficient to spend six hours reading this than for everyone to individually spend six hours with him in office hours.
However, the chapter discussions are so dense that it is hard to glean the key takeaway lessons. Some boxed chapter summaries and diagrams would be helpful.

Feb 23, Lark rated it really liked it Shelves: Wish he’d written them for all of my 1L classes. I didn’t actually finish this until the new year. Convinced if I’d made it through the last 2 chapters on time, my grade would be up a single grouping in the curve Aug 10, Meredith rated it really liked it. I love this thing. Sep 05, Ethan rated it really liked it. Turned my understanding of Ks from “completely mystified” to just “mystified,” so job well done, I suppose.
I’m hoping a re-read already underway will help further Dec 30, Alayne rated it it was amazing. My purpose for reading this book was to soothe some curiousity on what is covered in law school; since this is a supplemental text for many law schools on contracts it fit the bill. Really great review while studying for my contracts exam.
