Obligations and Contracts (Cloth Bound)

Obligations and Contracts (Cloth Bound)


New product

This book literally took me several years to finish. I completed Persons & Family Relations in 2006, Property in 2008, Civil Law Reviewer 1 in 2009 and Civil Law Reviewer 2 in 2017, but in between, I was already working with the draft of this book. My main problem in writing this one is deciding on the manner of presentation. Initially, I thought of presenting the book by topics totally disregarding the chronology of the articles. I realized, however, that the targeted users, mainly first year law students, may not be able to appreciate such approach because assignments in the classroom are usually given by articles and in chronological manner. Thus, I decided to present the book in chronological manner, following the sequence of articles but with certain twists. I divided the presentation into 23 Chapters, mostly following the chronology of the articles. The 23 Chapters are divided into two parts: Part 1 deals with Obligations and Part 2 talks of Contracts. Chapter 1 discusses the Concept and Elements of Obligations, Chapter 2 deals with the Sources of Obligations, Chapter 3 (Civil and Natural Obligations), Chapter 4 (Real and Personal Obligations), Chapter 5 (Breach of Obligation), Chapter 6 (Pure and Conditional Obligations), Chapter 7 (Obligations With A Term or Period), Chapter 8 (Alternative and Facultative Obligations), Chapter 9 (Joint and Solidary Obligations), Chapter 10 (Divisible and Indivisible Obligations), and Chapter 11 (Obligations With A Penal Clause). The topics on modes of extinguishment of obligations are divided into the following Chapters: Chapter 12 (Payment or Performance), Chapter 13 (Loss of Prestation), Chapter 14 (Condonation and Merger), Chapter 15 (Compensation), and Chapter 16 (Novation). The discussion on Contracts are divided into the following Chapters: Chapter 17 (Concept, Elements and Characteristics), Chapter 18 (Essential Requisites), Chapter 19 (Form, Reformation and Interpretation), Chapter 20 (Rescissible Contracts), Chapter 21 (Voidable Contracts), Chapter 22 (Unenforceable Contracts), and Chapter 23 (Void or Inexistent Contracts). Note that the articles on Natural Obligations are already discussed in Chapter 3. The presentation of every topic is simplified for the appreciation of its targeted audience. There was no attempt to discuss the topics in a scholarly manner because the objective is for the book to be easily understood by first year law students. The author hopes that he is able to achieve his objective.
