McGeorge School of Law

Student, Professors Co-Author Article

September 14, 2006

Kathleen Cordova-Lyon 4E co-wrote an article, “Estoppel to Avoid the California Statute of Frauds,” with Professors Phil Wile and Claude Rohwer that appears in the new McGeorge Law Review (Volume 35, Issue 3).

The article traces court expansion of a doctrine under which oral agreements are broadly recognized under a variety of estoppel principles despite the statute of frauds, which requires contracts be in writing.
