A perennial favorite, Jeffrey A. Helewitz’s Basic Contract Law for Paralegals provides paralegal students with a comprehensive introduction to contract law

Basic Contract Law for Paralegals is a clear, comprehensive, and straightforward introduction to all the basics of contract law, specifically designed for paralegal students. Lively examples and well-crafted pedagogy cover all key topics in a contracts course—from offer, acceptance, and consideration, to discharge of obligations, and remedies. The text balances coverage of case law with professional skills development and culminates with a chapter that asks students to draft a standard contract. An appendix of twelve sample contracts provides a useful ongoing reference tool.

New to the Tenth Edition:

Major new cases address:

  • Acceptance/non-acceptance of an offer by silence
  • Online acceptance of an offer
  • The capacity of a person suffering addiction to enter into a contract
  • Ambiguous conditions and contract formation
