dc.description.abstract In recent years there has been much discussion about the use and abuse of the ‘casebook’ method of teaching contract law. It is alleged that the casebook method is out-of-touch with legal practice and that contract law teaching should be more skills-centred, problem-based and technologically savvy. While there is merit to much of this discussion, we should be cautious about a wholesale abandonment of the casebook method. There are a number of benefits to teaching via the in-depth study of cases that may be lost if we fail to recognise what they are. While the casebook method can always be improved, it is still a teaching method that has utility for contract law students of the twenty-first century. en
