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
