This chart goes into detail about whether certain remedies are available, and how they are calculated, between different contracting parties in a few common situations, including sale of goods (buyer and seller), sale of land (buyer and seller), construction (owner and builder), and employment (employer and employee). Blanks in the diagram do not necessarily mean that that remedy is not available in that situation, just that I did not have a special rule to add.

I highly recommend Understanding Contracts by Jeffrey T. Ferriell. Like the other books in the Understanding series, this volume provides a clear and concise explanation of the law. I referred to it regularly in studying for the bar exam and in creating these diagrams, and as usual, I learned much more from the Understanding book than I did from my casebook.
Seriously, if Contracts is not crystal clear to you, and you have not read this book, click on the image to take advantage of Amazon’s Look Inside feature and start reading.

I would have loved to have this in a pdf. Too difficult to read if you copy it and expand. Thanks for these great last minute review tools!
Ah, I forgot the pdf for this one. It is now added!
This is very helpful to me as a foreign attorney in the LL.M. program. Thank you!

This is my first semester law school. Any advice you can give me
I have been considering law school forever and researching everything. I was married to a lawyer, and retired fairly young as a contracting officer so wow, what a good PDF on contracts. I had to look to see what I would be up against if I pursue a JD, so thank you for this. And God bless during COVID-19.
These are SO incredibly helpful! Thank you so much for creating them and making them available!
Thank you for your sweet comment. I wish you the best of luck in your studies.
