The methodology in Cases and Problems on Contracts started as a successful experiment. Students are forced to exercise analytic thinking prior to coming to class and master basic contracts by working problems and dissecting cases. The material employs the problem method in tandem with case dissection to develop students' interest and increase their store of knowledge. A large number of the cases were decided in the twenty-first century and involve current issues. The coursebook also includes many cases involving lawyers contracts to illuminate various aspects of professional responsibility demonstrating that the law governing lawyers' contracts is different.
