Contract Law offers a unique and highly innovative approach to contract law, utilising numerous diagrams to complement the academically rigorous text, which illuminate the subject and bring it to life.

Written by a leading contract lawyer with extensive teaching experience, the book employs a lively and critical style to explain the intricacies of contract law and the questions that arise during the life of a contract.

The book's use of 'pause for reflection' and 'counterpoint' boxes also encourages students to engage with the key debates, facilitating an appreciation of the more complex tensions surrounding this essential subject.
