Hutson Co-Authors North Carolina Contract Law, 2nd Edition
The second edition of North Carolina Contract Law published by LexisNexis and co-authored by Young Moore attorney, John N. Hutson, Jr., has been released. Twenty years in the making, this authoritative treatise spans two volumes and comprehensively examines more than two centuries of contract law. North Carolina Contract Law is the only one of its kind and serves as an indispensable guide and resource for lawyers, judges, and law students.
Volume 1 analyzes the creation and enforcement of common-law contracts and issues of mutual assent, consideration, parol evidence, and the statute of frauds. All types of common-law contracts are discussed in detail, including employment agreements, construction contracts, leases, contracts for the sale of land, options, broker’s contracts, master services agreements, development agreements, settlement agreements, and loan and guaranty agreements. This in-depth analysis covers cases decided from 1795 to the present.
Volume 2 thoroughly examines contracts for the sale of goods as governed by North Carolina’s version of Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code and as interpreted by the State’s appellate courts. Warranty issues are given an extensive discussion, as is the interplay between the UCC’s Article 2 and North Carolina’s Products Liability Act. Volume 2’s Appendices contain the full text of that Act, as well as North Carolina’s version of the UCC’s Article 1 and Article 2.
North Carolina Contract Law is available for purchase on LexisNexis.
