Learning Sales provides comprehensive treatment of UCC Article 2 while employing strategies designed to help students both learn the course material and develop the skill of reading and understanding statutes. The book also includes coverage of Article 2A and the CISG, which may be taught as separate units or in comparative fashion. The subject matter is presented in 27 assignments, each with targeted “reading the code” questions to help students master the statutory text, examples of how courts apply the Code, and numerous problems for students to test their understanding and skill.

Learning Sales is both a new volume in the Learning series and an extensive update and revision of the popular Chomsky & Kunz, Sale of Goods: Reading and Applying the Code (2d ed.). As in the previous volume, the book invites students to learn the UCC by actively reading and analyzing the language of Article 2 themselves, rather than relying more passively on what others (judges and commentators) have said about the Code. Judicial opinions appear only where they are most pedagogically appropriate and are edited to target salient points. Each opinion excerpt is preceded by questions about the case to help students be more focused in their reading and class preparation. Students enjoy the focus on problem-solving and can see their skill at reading and interpreting the Code improve as they engage with the examples and problems. Consistent with the rest of the Learning series, the book draws further upon current learning theory and practice by articulating key concepts for each section and specific learning outcomes for each assignment.

The authors of the original book (Carol Chomsky and Christina Kunz) have been joined by Jennifer Martin, who writes the annual survey of sales cases in the Business Lawyer, and Elizabeth Schiltz, an experienced teacher of Sales, Contracts, and Payment Systems. The Teachers’ Manual includes answers to all questions and problems posed in the book and includes additional information to help instructors use the book most effectively.
