It does not however contain the whole story. The law of contract is constantly developing both through the courts and via Statute. In recent years a number of superior court decisions have changed — and, on occasion, fundamentally changed — the way in which all courts now look at questions involving areas of contract as diverse as promissory estoppel, privity, implied terms, exemption clauses, mistake, illegality, duress, unconscionability, calculation of damages, restitution and remedies in general. Statute has also had a significant influence — especially in the consumer protection area — and this evolutionary process is likely to continue into the future. The fundamental framework is, however, unlikely to change greatly. Both business and the community generally need (and are well served by) the certainty that an established and relatively consistent law of contract provides for all of its commercial and quasi-commercial dealings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
