This one -credit seminar will offer students an opportunity to read and comment upon the scholarly papers and works-in-progress of leading scholars in the fields of contract law and contract theory. The seminar will meet seven times during the semester. Each session will consist of a presentation by the guest speaker followed by a discussion of the paper. Students are invited (but not required) to meet individually with the instructor prior to each seminar session to discuss the paper and will prepare short reaction/evaluation papers for each session. Students will be expected to participate fully in the seminar/workshop sessions. Letter grades will be assigned based on both an evaluation of the papers and on active participation in the workshop discussions.
