Are You Checking this Page/Extra Credit Reward? (7/15/2016)

We are off to a great start and are ahead of schedule. Nonetheless, I usually do end up missing 1 class at some point in the course. That is why I’ve asked you to always check this page before attending class. As a reward for those of you who did this week, here is an easy extra credit assignment (worth 5 points):

Please type (no handwritten responses accepted) the 6 elements of a legally-enforceable contract and turn it in at the beginning of class on July 20th.



Welcome (7/6/2016)

Hello everyone and thank you for checking the website. I am very much looking forward to teaching this course again and seeing some new (as well as a few returning) faces.

The syllabus for the course is posted under the “Documents and Resources” tab on this site. Print it out for yourself at your convenience. Also, please make sure to download the PowerPoints to bring to class each week as this should facilitate your note-taking.

Please obtain a copy of our text, Basic Contract Law for Paralegals – Jeffrey A. Helewitz (seventh edition), Aspen Publishers. If price is a consideration, you may want to rent the text rather than purchase it. Try the UCI bookstore, Amazon or a site like

I hope you enjoy the course and will see you tonight.

All the best,

Your Benevolent Instructor
