- What kinds of contracts must be evidenced by some writing under the Statute of Frauds, what the exceptions to the requirements are, and what satisfies a writing requirement
- What effect prior or contemporaneous “side” agreements have on a written contract
- How a contract is to be interpreted if its meaning is disputed
