Lecture no. 7 from the course: Law School for Everyone: Contracts

Mistake and Other Contract Defenses

Taught by Professor David Horton | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Some contractual agreements can be marred by mistakes: beliefs not in accord with the facts. Discover how the law struggles mightily with situations in which one or both parties are wrong about some basic assumption that animates their exchange. Also, learn about other rules that can make deals voidable, including mental incapacity and infancy.
