Advance Assignment

07/12/2022
Professor Chao Contracts The textbook for this class is Epstein, Markell & Ponoroff, Contracts: Making and Doing Deals (Fifth Edition). This is NOT the most recent edition, but last year's edition. My hope is that this will save everyone some money, but it may require that you buy books from prior students or used books online.

For the first week of class, assignments are:

Mon - In Contracts: Making and Doing Deals, read pp. 12-18, 24-37, 43-55.
Tues - In Contracts: Making and Doing Deals, read pp. 55-70.
Thurs - In Contracts: Making and Doing Deals, read pp. 80-91.
There are quizzes associated with each of these readings. You must complete them prior to class. For the first week, the quizzes do not affect your grade. But I provide them to you so you can get used to them

You should register for my class on Canvas. I anticipate having the Canvas course published by August 8. If you do not have the textbook, you can find these cases on Westlaw or Lexis. The citations for each of the cases is found on Canvas.

Professor Moran Lawyering Process (3B & 3D) Brilliant Students:

Welcome to Lawyering Process! This is a busy, fast-paced class, and it begins right away! As you explore the syllabus and other materials on our Canvas site, you'll see that the reading in this class is heavily front-loaded (the reverse is true in your other courses), while the writing and other deliverables get more intense toward the end of the semester. That means we have some readings (fortunately short ones) before we even get started.

Before our first class, please do the following:
- Explore our Canvas site, particularly taking note of what items are under the assignments link, the modules link, the files link, and the grades link on the left nav bar.
- Review the syllabus and course guidelines posted under the syllabus link on the left navigation bar.
- Purchase the texts and online materials listed under the syllabus link on the left nav bar.
- Review our first class, located under Modules on the left nav bar.
- Enroll in our Core Grammar and Mastering the Bluebook classes online.
- And finally, read chapters 1, 2, 4, and Chapter 8, section 1 of A Lawyer Writes.

Please note: You may receive correspondence from the Writing Clinic this week asking you to take a writing diagnostic test. You may take it if you want the assessment, but you are NOT required to do so. You will take a different diagnostic test for my class as part of the Core Grammar program that you will use this semester.
I look forward to getting started and having a great first semester!
Yours truly,
Suzanna Moran
