First Class Assignment(s):
  • Assignment: Please read the "Introduction to the Course," (available at http://contractslawinaction.law.miami.edu/ -- under "Course Materials on the upper right links on the home page). Come to the first class prepared to discuss: (1) the last contract you entered into, (2) a contract that you breached (legal language for "broke" or "didn't fulfill"), and (3) what happened after you breached. Read "Lease" (To be found on our course website: http://contractslawinaction.law.miami.edu/ -- under "Course Materials" on the top right hand side of the home page). The revisions were made by a lawyer. Why were they made? Can there be a contract with no legal remedy? Read "The Harry Potter Case, or What are you going to do? Cast a Spell?" (on our course website)
