Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, in an episode from our "Listen and Learn" series, we take a look at the Statute of Frauds, or the types of situations that are susceptible to fraud and therefore require a written and signed contract.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The situations that courts have decided are particularly open to fraud
  • What elements are needed for contract formation?
  • The rules and exceptions to the Statute of Frauds
  • Analyzing two Contracts questions, from the July 2011 and July 2019 California bar exams
  • How you should structure your exam answer when the question involves the Statute of Frauds
