Contract Law: Commentaries, Cases and Perspectives 2nd ed


ISBN13: 9780195578454
Published: April 2012
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Country of Publication: Australia
Format: Paperback
Price: Out of print



Contract Law introduces students to the fundamental principles, theories and arguments in contract law. It provides a carefully selected collection of cases, statutes and materials with insightful commentary designed to give students a thorough understanding of the subject. The commentary is clearly expressed and easy to understand and provides an accessible introduction to the law of contract without being too simplistic.

International perspectives are included in each chapter and show a comparative analysis of Indian and Chinese contract law. This provides students with an insight into the law of major Australian trading partners. This will help to inform and educate Australian students by introducing them to the law in some other key jurisdictions and by improving their understanding of Australian law and their analytical skills by enabling them to compare and contrast our law with that in those regions.

The text covers the law dealing with international contracts and incorporates a broad range of material, including US examples.
