In the third edition of Fundamentals of Contract Law, authors Laurence M. Olivo and Jean Fitzgerald build on the strength of the second edition by providing an up-to-date, engaging, and comprehensive introduction to contract law.

With the new third edition, students are better able to understand the application of legal principles thanks to the use of clear language, plus a host of updated scenarios. In a logical and coherent manner, the text introduces students to how contract rights and remedies have developed, the fundamentals of contract drafting, factors that enhance or impair the contractual relationship, and how conflicts are resolved.

The third edition features a new chapter on electronic contracts and e-commerce.
