A perennial favorite, Jeffrey A. Helewitz’s Basic Contract Law for Paralegals provides paralegal students with a comprehensive introduction to contract law

Basic Contract Law for Paralegals is a clear, comprehensive, and straightforward introduction to all the basics of contract law, specifically designed for paralegal students. Lively examples and well-crafted pedagogy cover all key topics in a contracts course—from offer, acceptance, and consideration, to discharge of obligations, and remedies.

An appendix of twelve sample contracts provides a useful ongoing reference tool.
