This text examines law and legal institutions through the broad lens of Christian thought, both Catholic and Protestant. The book addresses methodological issues in Christian legal scholarship (What makes legal thought "Christian"?); the relevance of Christian theological doctrines-such as creation, the Christian conception of the human person, the kingdom of God, and the natural and divine laws-for reflection on law; the significance of historical context for Christian legal thought; Christian reflection on important jurisprudential issues and concepts, such as equality, justice, rights, and the rule of law; and Christian perspectives on various legal subjects, such as contracts, torts, and property. The point of the book is less to prescribe what a Christian legal theory should entail in the way of outcomes than to use the Christian faith as a lens through which to understand, and reflect critically upon, law and legal institutions.

The fourth edition continues the goal of earlier editions: providing the most current and comprehensive treatment of the modern law of sales and leases in national and international transactions. The new edition includes important new cases to elaborate the continuing development of critical provisions of that law, and to elucidate new case law trends. The official withdrawal of proposed amendments to UCC Articles 2 and 2A provided room for these important cases without a significant increase in the size of the volume. While continuing to emphasize any significant differences between Articles 2 and 2A, the new edition eliminates separate coverage of Article 2A where its provisions replicate Article 2. At the same time, the important distinction between true leases and secured transactions disguised as leases not only continues but is emphasized in new case and text material. Among other current developments, the fourth edition recognizes the Supreme Court's important elaboration of the Federal Arbitration Act and its effect on the holdings and rationales of state courts in adjudicating claims of unconscionable arbitration agreements. The unique CISG coverage of prior editions has been updated, along with the text material throughout the volume, to provide the most current dimensions of sales law.

In a logical and persuasive manner, this class-tested casebook first provides background information about UCC Article 2 and the CISG, then addresses key issues in the order in which a lawyer is likely to encounter them in practice: Which law is applicable? Has a contract been formed? What are the terms of the contract? Has the contract been performed? If not, what are the available remedies for the injured party? Finally, the text concludes by considering third parties involved in the sales transactions and the law governing their obligations.Many problems refer students to international collections found on the Internet, and the text provides references to both unrevised and revised UCC Article 1. The Second Edition has been updated to reflect the newer version of the INCOTERMS (INCOTERMS 2010), and the Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits (UCP 600). Discussion of UCC Article 2 has been revised as a result of the Uniform Law Commission and American Law Institute dropping the proposed amendments. Features: Provides background information about UCC Article 2 and the CISG Addresses key issues in the order encountered in practice Which law is applicable? Has a contract been formed?

Learning Sales provides comprehensive treatment of UCC Article 2 while employing strategies designed to help students both learn the course material and develop the skill of reading and understanding statutes. The book also includes coverage of Article 2A and the CISG, which may be taught as separate units or in comparative fashion. The subject matter is presented in 27 assignments, each with targeted "reading the code" questions to help students master the statutory text, examples of how courts apply the Code, and numerous problems for students to test their understanding and skill. Learning Sales is both a new volume in the Learning series and an extensive update and revision of the popular Chomsky & Kunz, Sale of Goods: Reading and Applying the Code (2d ed.). As in the previous volume, the book invites students to learn the UCC by actively reading and analyzing the language of Article 2 themselves, rather than relying more passively on what others (judges and commentators) have said about the Code. Judicial opinions appear only where they are most pedagogically appropriate and are edited to target salient points. Each opinion excerpt is preceded by questions about the case to help students be more focused in their reading and class preparation. Students enjoy the focus on problem-solving and can see their skill at reading and interpreting the Code improve as they engage with the examples and problems. Consistent with the rest of the Learning series, the book draws further upon current learning theory and practice by articulating key concepts for each section and specific learning outcomes for each assignment. The authors of the original book (Carol Chomsky and Christina Kunz) have been joined by Jennifer Martin, who writes the annual survey of sales cases in the Business Lawyer, and Elizabeth Schiltz, an experienced teacher of Sales, Contracts, and Payment Systems. The Teachers' Manual includes answers to all questions and problems posed in the book and includes additional information to help instructors use the book most effectively.

This Understanding treatise is designed for first-year law students enrolled in Contracts. The text explains common law principles of contract law using cases and examples that students commonly encounter in this first-year course. It draws illustrations from the Restatement (Second) of Contracts, and from Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code as it has been adopted in all fifty states. This edition includes expanded material on the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods, and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts, appropriate to a basic course in Contracts, and on modern statutes regarding electronic contracting. Understanding Contracts was written with the understanding that Contracts will be one of the most challenging courses first-year law students will take. It explains how key concepts apply in several recurring basic fact patterns. It then builds on those fact patterns to explain how the law is more difficult to apply in business transactions with more complex facts. A key feature of Understanding Contracts, that is not found in other similar books, is its conscious incorporation of basic explanations of the common business practices to which the law of contracts applies. The feature helps students, many of whom have not had any background in the business world, understand contract law in the business settings in which it frequently applies. The book also provides detailed topic headings that students can use to develop their own comprehensive course outline. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
