For more than seventy years, leading torts scholars at the Yale Law School and elsewhere have used this casebook. It unconventionally begins with strict liability. A recent study published by the Arizona State Law Journal shows that this sequence results in students experiencing a greater appreciation of "the judge's role as being influenced by social, economic, and ideological factors and a sense of fairness and less as a process of rule application than do students who begin their study with either intentional torts or negligence." The Sixth Edition is more accessible to students because of substantially expanded textual explanations and more tightly edited opinions. Updates include frequent discussions of Restatement (Third) provisions and a significant number of recently decided cases including several from the Supreme Court addressing products preemption, displacement in climate change litigation, and First Amendment limits on liability for intentional infliction of emotional distress. Comprehensive Changes A new appendix to the casebook, "The Litigation Process," facilitates the student's introduction to the torts litigation process. Relevant provisions of the recently adopted Restatement (Third) of Torts are quoted throughout the text. The Sixth Edition adds an unusual number of recently decided cases, including several from the Supreme Court of the United States addressing issues such as preemption, displacement in climate change litigation, and First Amendment limits on the tort of intentional infliction of emotional distress. The amount of textual explanation in introductions and in notes has been greatly expanded to facilitate the student's understanding. In addition, the enhanced notes often ask students to consider newly added questions as they read the opinions and prepare for classroom discussion. The excerpted opinions are more tightly edited. The chapter in the previous edition that addressed damages has been split into two chapters, one covering "Damages" and the other, "Other Limitations on Liability Based on Type of Harm."

As a part of our CasebookPlus offering, you'll receive a new print book along with lifetime digital access to the downloadable eBook. In addition, you'll receive 12-month online access to the Learning Library which includes quizzes tied specifically to your book, an outline starter and three leading study aids in that subject and the Gilbert� Law Dictionary. The included study aids are Contracts in a Nutshell, Exam Pro on Contracts, Objective and Acing Contracts. In the Ninth Edition of Studies in Contract Law, Ian Ayres and Greg Klass have continued their work of streamlining, updating and supplementing this classic casebook. The new edition includes extensive discussion of the Draft Restatement (Third) of Consumer Contracts. There are new cases on telemarketing, good faith, the perfect tender rule, warranties and reliance, half-truths, fraud liability between contracting parties, class arbitration, adequate assurances, mitigation, mental anguish, intentional interference, and personal services contracts. And the authors have added three new drafting exercises to the many practice problems that the book has always included. This edition makes some structural changes to the chapter on remedies to make it more accessible to students. The discussion now begins with general principles, such as the choice between damages and specific performance, efficient breach, and the foreseeability, mitigation and certainty rules. It then addresses seller and buyer remedies, under the UCC and common law, followed by a discussion of special topics such as personal service contracts, liquidated damages, and recovery for nonpecuniary damages. The new edition also includes a new section on fraud liability between contract parties--a topic that usually falls in the gap between Torts and Contracts. And the authors have integrated materials from the arbitration chapter into the rest of the book, and added new section on the Supreme Court's recent class arbitration jurisprudence. Ayres has now recorded more than 90 contract law videos that will be freely available for viewing on Coursera.com and YouTube (search for "Ian Ayres Contracts"). These videos are largely free-standing discussions of individual cases from the casebook and can be used as supplemental lectures or to "flip the classroom." Ayres has also recorded more than 30 videos, also freely available on these platform (search for "Ayres Law Students toolkits"), covering basic legal concepts (e.g., rules vs. standards) and techniques (e.g., how to brief a case) that might be useful for first-year students.
