Written by leading Conflicts scholars, this casebook presents a balanced study of Conflict of Laws. The books starts with a discussion of traditional approaches to choice-of-law problems, followed by an examination how modern courts and commentators have struggled to formulate more responsive approaches. The remaining broad topics--constitutional limitations on choice of law, the Erie doctrine, personal jurisdiction, conflicts in the federal system, recognition of judgments, conflicts in the international context, choosing legal regimes and choice of law in complex litigation--are considered in light of the wisdom derived from consideration of the basic choice-of-law problems. Key New Features: Chapter on Conflict of Laws in the Federal System, which was deleted in the 6th edition, is added back at the request of adopters; the chapter does not attempt a comprehensive coverage of issues that are typically addressed in a civil procedure or federal jurisdiction course but instead focuses on the federalism questions that are relevant to conflict of laws. Addition of Goodyear v. Brown and Daimler v. Bauman to the chapter on personal jurisdiction, two Supreme Court cases that greatly modernize the subject New discussion of the impact of law and economics on choice of law theory Discussion of new cases on post-9/11 scope of constitutional limits New examples pertaining to recognition of judgments in domestic relations cases, e.g., child kidnapping Continued coverage of the First Restatement rules that continue to be important, with less emphasis on First Restatement rules of less relevance today. Re-introduction of discussion of New York cases addressing choice of law theory, with focus on important new cases

The Fifth Edition provides a comprehensive set of teaching materials for the course in Conflict of Laws as it is taught in most American law schools. It includes some new cases, selected for their teaching value, while also retaining the best cases from the prior edition. It also includes problems in all chapters to test the students' understanding of each segment of material covered in the course. The first three chapters establish the historical background for the study of Conflict of Laws, introduce the students to all of the Conflicts systems existing in the United States, and explore the constitutional limits on the ability of the states to apply their law to multistate transactions and occurrences. With this background, the following four chapters examine the operation of the choice-of-law doctrines used in the areas of torts, contracts, property, and domestic relations. The grounding provided by the first three chapters allows teachers to choose those topics to teach in the following four chapters without necessarily covering the chapters in their entirety if time does not permit. The final three chapters deal with vertical choice of law (the Erie doctrine), interstate judgment enforcement, and personal jurisdiction. The book is organized so that these final three chapters can be covered out of order to suit a wide range of teaching preferences. Each chapter contains note material following the cases to help teachers explore the full range of issues raised by the doctrines being studied. The problems contained in each chapter increase the students' comprehension of the materials and provide a basis for more interesting classroom discussions.

Contracts: Cases, Discussion, and Problems, Fourth Edition is known for its strikingly clear, straightforward text that illuminates cases as well as concepts and theory. The book focuses on modern cases to expose students to contemporary contract law, but it also includes many important or iconic older cases. The cases are set in context by extensive author-written explanatory text. Insightful questions draw attention to difficult and crucial aspects of the law and prompt vigorous class discussion. Numerous problems, ranging from simple to complex, supplement cases and introduce topics taught most effectively through problems. The casebook’s traditional organization begins with formation and then corresponds to the sequence followed by the Restatement (2nd) of Contracts and treatises. Its concise, efficient presentation results in an optimum length for the course. Procedural issues are highlighted when presented by the cases and transactional issues such as drafting, client counseling, and negotiation are raised through the use of questions and small exercises throughout the text. Strengthening the text’s focus on contemporary methods of contracting, modern issues in standard contracts are explored along with contracts entered into electronically. International and comparative material offers alternative approaches for students to consider, such as those taken by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts.
