This course is designed to prepare current LLM students with an understanding of the nature of contract law in the United States and to prepare them for the New York bar exam. We assume that each student is familiar with basic concepts of contract law in his or her own jurisdiction. Topics covered in this course will resemble those that are covered in a JD-level contracts course, with a special emphasis on hypotheticals and cases likely to be seen on the bar exam. Students are expected to come to class prepared each week to discuss assigned cases and readings.
