Contract law allows consumers and businesses to enact fair remedy whenever they enter into a contract, whatever that might be. All parties in a contract ought to act fairly and honestly, but if they won’t then you could contact a lawyer for contracts for help.

Contracts are at the core of many legal specializations, such as labor law, intellectual law and business law.

Learning Contract Law

Learning Contract Law can be challenging; new rulings come into place daily and they make up new case law. Additionally, Contract law differs from state to state, so depending on where you practice, you’ll use different law and rulings.

Law students face the challenge of needing to memorize precise details of large quantities of case law--and then logically and analytically implementing it.

Brainscape is the ideal supplementary tool for law students, which will allow you to efficiently memorize large quantities of legal concepts and rulings. Once you’ve built a strong foundation of legal knowledge, application will become easier.  

Contract Law in Brainscape

If you want to practice law, you will need to complete an undergraduate major, this can be in any subject but some subjects are viewed more favorably such as English, Economics, Science or Mathematics. Law school requires excellent research, writing and analytical skills; success in these subjects is a good indicator of these skills.

You’ll be required to take the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) to enter Law school; and upon admission to law school you’ll later need to take the Bar Exam in order to practice.

Learn faster with Brainscape

Brainscape has developed a system known as confidence-based repetition (CBR), which allows students to learn twice as fast. The system incorporates three well-known and proven learning methods: Active Recall, Metacognition, and Spaced Recognition.  

The benefits of using Brainscape is that learners not only allocate their study time more effectively, but also retain information for longer.

Brainscape is different than other computer-aided learning tools because it uniquely incorporates a metacognitive user-response to fuel its algorithm.

With other computer-aided learning tools, flashcards are shown randomly. However, Brainscape chooses the perfect time to show you each card based on your recorded responses.

You might be reviewing a flashcard about 'Consideration,' and you thought your understanding of the subject was poor. In that case, you would record your understanding as a “1” . The algorithm will show you that card again--more frequently--until you gradually record a higher rating.When you record the highest rating of “5,” the card will be shown very infrequently. This system, repeated on each card in the deck, has the effect of perfectly shuffling the deck for optimal learning.

CBR also incorporates active recall. This process involves the retrieval of information--rather than just recognizing it. When active recall takes place, the neurons are strengthened--as is the memory trace. The flashcards in Brainscape are designed to make your brain work smarter--while you retrieve information rather than simply recognizing it.

Finally, Brainscape also incorporates spaced repetition into the CBR system. This is also an important, researched learning method with proven results. Learners see flashcard with bite-sized pieces of information at regular intervals, which is a proven effective method for retention.

Only Brainscape incorporates all three of these learning methods, making it the most powerful learning engine on today’s education market.
