Donovan v. RRL Corporation (2001) 26 Cal 4th 261

This California Supreme Court case is a great contracts teaching tool because it involves a subject of common interest to most students (attempted purchase of a car). In analyzing this breach of contract case, the court examines 3 major contract law issues covered at the beginning, middle, and end of a semester. [These issues are: ads & offers; unilateral mistake; and the statute of frauds.] You can therefore assign segments of this case (the gradual approach) depending on the topic you are covering, or use it at the end of a semester to illustrate how a court pulls together the various aspects of contract law in analyzing a case. I listed this as a case study but it's also ripe facts/grounds for essay-style quizzes or even the creation of multiple choice questions.
