Welcome back to the Bar Exam Toolbox podcast! Today's episode is part of our "Listen and Learn" series, where we review a substantive area of the law and apply it to fact patterns. This time, we're focusing on the Statute of Frauds in Contract Law.
Note: It has come to our attention that this episode was released with an error in the "Betty" hypo. See the transcript for a corrected statement of the law, and stay tuned for a revised recording!
