Contracts

Warranties

A contract can contain many different types of promises, made up of both express and implied terms. Express and implied warranty terms are the subject of this lesson. For instance, when parties contract for the sale of goods, they have certain expectations about the goods to be sold. These expectations form the basis of warranties that arise under U.C.C. Article 2. That is, what has the seller agreed to sell?

Written Agreement Contemplated v. Written Memorialization

This lesson looks at the process of negotiations discussing the terms of a contract when the parties contemplate a final written agreement. Often the intention is to put the terms into a final definitive writing and for the contract not to arise until signed. Other times, parties may actually agree to the terms of a contract with the obligation to execute a final contract in writing containing all the terms agreed upon. When they make such an agreement, this agreement itself may conclude the contract even prior to the signing of the final documents. This lesson illustrates both of these situations and concludes with a sample analysis problem looking at the existence of a contract after oral negotiations.
