Nolo’s New Contracts Book: Don’t Make a Deal Without It

We’re happy to announce the latest addition to the Nolo bookstore: Contracts: The Essential Business Desk Reference, by Nolo author and attorney Rich Stim (of Dear Rich fame) is the first desk reference of contract terms written specifically with non-lawyers in mind.

While contracts have become an integral part of everyday life, very few of us are able to decipher the legalese in these documents. So it’s no surprise that most people hesitate before signing on the dotted line and committing to a contract’s terms. Contracts will arm you with all the information you need to sign any agreement with confidence. This all-in-one guide can also save you money by coaching you on which clauses are important, so you can avoid a pricey professional review by a lawyer. Get your copy of Contracts now!

For dozens of free articles on contract law, sample agreements, and much more, check out Nolo’s Business Contracts section.

Nolo Lists 40 Greatest Documents in American History

Nolo 40th Anniversary LogoAs we approach our 40th birthday, we’re looking back–not just at our own past, but at milestones in America’s legal history. The patriotic team of lawyer-editors here at Nolo have named what they consider the greatest legal documents in American history. They’ve carefully chosen the 40 speeches, 40 documents, 40 laws, 40 landmark Supreme Court cases. Our collection marks key moments in our nation’s infancy, like Patrick Henry’s stirring “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech and the monumental Federalist Papers. The collection also spotlights crucial steps on the path to equality, such as the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision and the groundbreaking Civil Rights Act of 1964.
