The ever-evolving nature of modem commercial transactions dictates the need to review the common law area of personal service contracts. Namely, that when a court labels a contract as one for "personal service," in contrast to the general rule of assignability, it is per se nonassignable. A review of this exception to assignability is suggested when one views the dramatic change in the nature of personal service contracts as well as their increasing popularity.
