This class was tough.
I would recommend this class. Professor Reilly is a very good teacher. She really enjoys the subject, and she has a lively and engaging personality. These qualities are very helpful, because many people in my class found contract law to be confusing. Professor Reilly is really good at both taking and answering questions. People were not scared to participate in class discussion, even if they struggled with a particular subject.
I learned the basics of Contract law: offer and acceptance. I also learned that, for almost every potential contract dispute, there are a variety of ways to frame the facts to support either position. Contract law is one area where a creative lawyer can truly shine.

Advice for students:
Always do your reading before class. In some classes it's not too hard to follow along and catch up on the reading afterwards, but it is not easy to do that in Contracts. The class discussion is enormously beneficial to your overall understanding of the material and preparation for the test, and it can be extremely difficult to follow the class discussion if you're behind on your reading.
