Suitable for use in combination with any law school contract text or casebook, the 2007 Edition of Selections for Contracts: Statutes, Restatement Second, Forms compiles the major statutes, forms, and other materials affecting contract law. The supplement provides Uniform Commercial Code Articles 1 and 2; the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act; the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act; Restatement of the Law, Second, of Contracts; the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods; the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts; and selected forms. Highlights of the 2007 Edition include: The presentation of Article 1 of the Uniform Commercial Code has been reorganized inasmuch as more than half of the states have now enacted revised Article 1. Both versions of Article 1 are presented. In each case, though, the presentation is abridged by the elision of provisions not relevant to contract law under the Uniform Commercial Code. As in previous editions, both the current version of Article 2 and the proposed amendments promulgated in 2003 are included. The presentation of the proposed amendments has been clarified by indicating proposed changes from current law by underlines and strikeouts. In addition, recent technical amendments to the text of the proposed amendments have been incorporated. Of course, in light of the failure (to date) of states to enact the proposed amendments, the main educational role served by their inclusion in the materials is to enable 'compare and contrast' discussions rather than to exemplify the current state of the law. Materials on electronic commerce (the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act and the federal ESIGN Act) have been added. The presentation of the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts has been updated to reflect the current version. New section on Selected Contracts and Agreements providing actual contracts from well known cases, such as Wood v. Lucy, Peevyhouse v. Garland Coal Mining Co., Dalton v. ETS, and Bloor v. Falstaff Brewing Co.
