Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! In today’s episode, as part of our “Listen and Learn” series, we’re discussing Section 2-207 of the Uniform Commercial Code. Join us for a review on why this section is called “The Battle of the Forms” and how it applies between merchants and non-merchants.
In this episode we discuss:
- What’s the first thing a professor typically wants to see on a Contracts essay?
- The “predominant purpose” test for a transaction
- The “mirror image” rule from common law
- Understanding the rules of UCC § 2-207
- Going through two hypos involving contracts
- How are additional and different contract terms treated by the courts?
- The importance of using each fact you’re given and walking through the steps of the analysis
