San Diego Association of Realtors, 77 Cal.

December 2015

Corbin on Contracts Corbin on Contracts (Pub. #63310 - Release 15R1) – This release provides a new edition of Volume 16, Corbin on Contracts Answer Guide. This edition of the Corbin on Contracts Answer Guide is based on continuous research and analysis that is primarily concerned with maintaining and enhancing the full Corbin on Contracts treatise. While statutory developments are of obvious importance, well over a thousand cases are examined each year, typically resulting in some two hundred and fifty supplements to the treatise. Trends and completed developments in the case law may also suggest supplementary sections to the treatise. Each new Answer Guide assimilates significant developments and trends based on this research to provide the practitioner with the most important discussions of any case law or statutory development related to contract law.

The perennial research has demonstrated clear and convincing evidence of the vibrant nature of contract law that appears in many guises. What may superficially appear to be a case in labor law, corporate law, tort law or in developing fields such as energy law are often decided on the basis of contract law principles. Moreover, contract doctrine is anything but static. For example, at the moment, even something as fundamental as contract formation theory is unsettled. Even more recent developments concerning the enforceability of “terms later” and conflicting case law are discussed in this edition. There are many other illustrations of developments and incipient trends throughout contract law. The digital revolution affects contract doctrine in many ways, some of which remain puzzling. The contract law of the 21st century is no longer relegated to domestic case law and statutes. Eighty nations have adopted the Vienna Convention. CISG is now as much a part of American contract law as the Uniform Commercial Code.
