It is interesting for a contracts teacher to note the relatively small number o' contract cases decided during the survey period and that the contract cases decided seldom involve problems of offer, acceptance or consideration, the basic content of a law school course on contracts. The conclusion to be drawn, however, is not that the wrong emphasis is being placed in contract courses, but rather that the lawyer generally is so well informed on the more fundamental problems of contracts that he either avoids the creation of such problems or is able to decide upon the proper rule without going to an appellate court. It is also true that the absence of a great volume of contract litigation is due to the fact that conracts is a relatively settled and stable body of law.
