Contracts Law I & II
Full Year Tutored Course
Contracts involves the study of the body of law governing the making and breaking of agreements. You will learn what it takes to create a binding contract with another party and the types of contracts. You will learn how to construct a contract and how to enforce it. You’ll spend considerable time reading what happens when one of the parties breaks its promises or breaches the contract and the remedies available for the breach. You will learn about liquidated damages, specific performance, express and implied warrantees, and unilateral contracts. You will learn about the defenses in the formation and enforcement of contracts and you will learn about third party rights. Much of the course will deal with development of contracts in the commercial setting including the battle of the forms and substitution of statutory law in the form of the Uniform Commercial Code for the common law in many situations.
Bill Hansult is a practicing California attorney and launched Side-Bar to help students pass the California and UBE exams at the lowest possible cost. He spent two years developing a system that works for both California and UBE states. The program differs from many other programs because it does not use lectures.
Instead, he provides students with outlines, practice tests and a schedule. It is the same memory reinforcement system that Bill used to pass the California Bar exam several years ago. After students master a long outline, they move to smaller and smaller ones, until a week before the exam. At that point, students switch to a "Bar Bones" outline which includes everything in 12 pages and is used as a refresher.
