Contracts PLA 3428 – CRN 80818 Professor Paul Asfour Class Notes Assignments: - Every week one case brief (1 page long) will be due. - Textbook question answers and case brief should be on one word document. - If you submitted a full attempt and he is not satisfied, he will give you 24 hours to fix the issues and resubmit the assignment. Case briefs: - Format quiz is not due but available for our benefit. It can be used as a checklist. - Facts are substantive and procedural; both should be included. - Copy & paste from case are allowed, no need to use quotations. - There is no need to research outside of the case to complete the brief. - Facts should not include what the decision was at the court, it is in the Holding. - Facts should only include relevant information to the court’s decision. - The issue should always begin with “Did the lower court err” or “Did the lower court abuse its discretion.” - The lower court should always be referred to as the lower court. - State the law and what it says. It will be clearly cited within the case. Exams: - Two 50 question multiple choice tests in class. - All answers are from the textbook. - Two weeks before test a review sheet will be sent out. Project Case List: - Spreadsheet will be due 10/26 with names of cases wanting to use for project. - First come, first choice on cases. No duplicates between students. - Use Florida Jurisprudence & West Law for research. - Cases can be from any state as long as they are about contracts. (i.e. not criminal cases). - Choose 5 cases discussing different types of contract law. Tips: - Punctuality & Punctuation are very important. - Phrasing is mandatory. Example: I agree with the holding in Acosta v. Dist. Bd. Of Trustees Miami Dade Comm. College because… - Sometimes there is only the lower court’s decision if the case did not go to appeals. - Each court is only concerned with the immediate lower court’s decision. Acosta Case Notes: - Concerning breach of contract and promissory estoppel. - Promissory Estoppel: preclusion of an assertion by the promisor that is inconsistent with a previously made promise upon which the promise has relied. - Court agreed there was not a price quoted therefore there was no contract. - Vague language gave the college more room for error.
