“A CONTRACT IS AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN TWO OR MORE LEGALLY COMPETENT PERSONS TO CONDUCT A LEGAL ACT NOW OR IN THE FUTURE ON WHICH THERE IS MUTUAL ASSENT AND BARGAINED-FOR CONSIDERATION”
Every student who took Dr. Sid Davidson’s Business Law class had to memorize this. He once told us that a former student of his upon recognizing him in a restaurant repeated this sentence in public. He took his class years earlier.
Even as a grown-up — at least I should be one – I was taken by his enthusiasm for teaching. I was amazed by his ability to motivate students of all ages.
I asked him once: So when will you have your last lecture?
And he answered: WHEN GOD CALLS ME HOME I SUPPOSE????
He called him home on August the 13th after 48 years of teaching. Knowing him I doubt that even one of these years was wasted …
