How can a Contract Law tutor help you?
Varsity Tutors can help connect you with a qualified tutor in your area or online for help with contract law. Contract law is an important component in a variety of legal practice areas. As a first-year law student, you must take a full year of contract law. This course is a component of both the Multistate Bar Exam, or the MBE, and the state-specific bar exams. Many courses will continue to work with contracts in other legal courses (such as labor law, property, and contract drafting), but the bulk of first-year coursework focuses on commercial contracts.
Commercial contract law is vast, detailed, and complex. Students must navigate between common law principles of contract law, which have their roots in English law, and the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), a voluminous collection of contract law proposals that have been adopted by most states. The emphasis on learning the 2,000-page UCC means that contract law courses are less reliant on reading case law than most courses, and although reading case law is certainly difficult, many students find reading and parsing through the Uniform Commercial Code to be even more dry and tedious.
Harmonizing common law contract principles with the Uniform Commercial Code for a particular set of facts can be overwhelming. When is there a contract offer? When is there acceptance? Is there a valid agreement in place? Can the contract be canceled, and if so, how does the canceling party go about ending the agreement appropriately? If the contract is just breached, what is the penalty for nonperformance? And if there is no express agreement, is there an implied contract? The questions, much like the memorized material, are seemingly endless.
Varsity Tutors can help. We can connect you with contract law tutors to help you parse through the dense UCC and make sense of common law contract principles. Contract law tutors include licensed attorneys and current law students, all of whom have experienced the same frustrations and dense material that current first-year law students are facing. When you first get in touch with the Varsity Tutors educational directors, they will assist you in filling out a profile that allows law tutors to see what your learning style is, what courses you are taking, what your concerns are, and many other factors that they consider while forming a lesson plan for their students.
With a personal tutor, you are given one-on-one education that is coupled with powerful insight from a professional in the law industry. They are not only familiar with the exams you will take, but they know the ins and outs of the basics. They can provide valuable tips and suggestions that you can implement while taking the exams. In addition, they can offer tips on the field of study based on their experience in the field itself. There are many ways that a law tutor can guide any student, so it is wise to take advantage of all they have to offer.
Tutoring sessions are convenient and flexible. The lesson plan is customized specifically for you, which means that if you master a concept, the tutor will alter his or her lesson plan to keep up with your pace. You may spend a single session on one concept and multiple sessions on another. Further, as you approach testing time, they are able to provide practice questions and tests to assess your preparation. From there, the tutor can alter their lesson plan to ensure that you are prepared and confident as you enter the exam room.
