Herma Hill Kay, Larry Kramer, Kermit Roosevelt & David L. Franklin, Conflict of Laws: Cases, Comments, and Questions (West Academic, 11th ed. 2022)
Please be advised that this is a new edition of the Casebook first made available in 2022, so it may be difficult to find a used one. The 10th edition is, unfortunately, not a good substitute.
The 11th edition is available in both digital and hardcopy form. If you buy the Casebook directly from the publisher, we have a code that will get you immediate access to the digital version, so you can prepare for the first week of class without disruption. And there is a separate code for SeattleU students to get a 15% discount on any purchase made directly from West! Follow these directions:
To get immediate access to the digital version of the Casebook, go to eproducts.westacademic.com and log-in if you have a West Academic account, or click “Create an Account” and follow the prompts to create one. Once you are logged in, click “Redeem Code” in the upper right corner and enter the code above to add the title to your eProducts Bookshelf. The Code for immediate digital access is 732Y-BHUS-KMRG-9XVF-MHDE. From there, click on the Casebook’s title or the picture of its cover to begin using the eBook. I have also attached an instruction document with screenshots to this email. Our e-copies are paginated identically to their print counterparts, so there shouldn’t be any issues if you start using this e-copy now and then later switch to a print copy. For more detailed instructions, see Eproduct Code Redemption Instructions (PDF).
To get the 15% discount, enter the school-specific discount code WASEATTLE at checkout.

Please add this course through TWEN and read the first assignment below prior to the first day of class.
We will be using (1) Siegel, Federal Courts: Cases and Materials (2d ed. 2019) and (2) Siegel, 2022 Supplement (which is posted on TWEN).
You are expected to read and think about the assigned material before each class as well as to contribute to class discussions — both by raising your hand and when called on. I will call on students alphabetically so you will generally know when you should be fully prepared to discuss the assigned cases, notes, and problems. If something has come up so that you are less than optimally prepared for a particular class, please email me prior to class so I will know not to call on you. You may pass in this way twice during the semester.
UCC Sales (COMM-350-A)
Casebook: Daniel Keating, Sales: A Systems Approach (Wolters Kluwer Law & Business/Aspen Press, 7th ed. 2020)
The Casebook is available in both hardcopy and digital-only form. If you buy a new hardcopy Casebook, you automatically get access to the digital form of the book plus all the digital study aids discussed below. The digital-only form is available from the publisher for about one-third less than the new-hardcopy-plus-digital bundle (a savings of about $100). See https://www.aspenpublishing.com/keating-sales7. Needless to say, I have no objection if you choose to save money by buying a used Casebook or Statutory Supplement.
If you buy a new-hardcopy-plus-digital bundle, or just the digital-only version, you also get access (at no additional cost) to practice essay and multiple-choice study questions, as well as other study aids. (These will not be available if you buy your book used.) While many students find these additional materials useful, none of them will be required for class.
Additional Materials may be posted on Canvas as needed or appropriate.
In addition, you will need a Statutory Supplement:
Any statutory supplement designed for use in a Contracts course will likely contain everything you need for this course, so if you still have your supplement from Contracts, it will probably work just fine. The key material is UCC Articles 1, 2, and 2A with the Official Comments, and the CISG (the Convention for the International Sale of Goods).
If you’re looking for a recommendation, I recommend (but do not require) this more comprehensive commercial-law statutory supplement:
