The Law of Contract offers a clear, non-technical explanation of the principles of contract law combined with a focus on case summaries throughout.

The book's strengths lie in the authors' highly praised explanation of the law, their ability to demystify difficult concepts without losing academic rigour, and use of case summaries, quotations, and analysis to explain the law of contract.

  • On certainty and completeness:
  • Schweppe v Harper
  • Forstater v Dweck and Another
  • Bear Stearns Bank Plc v Forum Global Equity Ltd

  • On intention to create legal relations:
  • Wilson & Anr v Burnett
  • New Testament Church of God v Stewart
