Calleros publishes article in Chicago-Kent Law Review

September 04, 2013

Charles Calleros, professor in the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, recently published an article on comparative contract law in the Chicago–Kent Journal of International and Comparative Law.

The article, “Cause, Consideration, Promissory Estoppel, and Promises Under Deed: What our Students Should Know about Enforcement of Promises in A Historical and International Context,” contrasts the American theory of consideration with the European civil law theory of cause.

Calleros also traces the evolution under U.S. law, from the earlier doctrine of equitable estoppel, of a civil cause of action under promissory estoppel for damages for breach of even gratuitous promises.

Calleros’ research interests include international and comparative contract law; international conflict of laws; the intersection of free speech with race and gender discrimination; and various issues regarding legal education. At ASU, he teaches Contracts, International Contracts, Civil Rights Legislation, and Legal Method and Writing, using his own published textbooks for Contracts and Legal Method and Writing.
