    Overview
    Course description: Contracts I & II provides a comprehensive overview of contract law in the United States. The course covers most of the key concepts found in a first year law school class. Each lecture is based on one or more common-law cases, integrating legal doctrines with policy discussions. The course also covers key sections from the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), which governs the sale of goods.

    By the end of the course, the learner should be able to understand:

    Formation defenses: how an otherwise valid contract can be void, including the statute of frauds, mistake, misrepresentation, duress, unconscionability, and illegality.
    Performance: the scope and content of a contractual obligation, including conditions, the duty of good faith, and the impracticability defense.
    Remedies: the types of available remedies for a breach of contract, including various types of money damages and injunctive relief.
