Jill Poole's bestselling Casebook on Contract Law provides students with a comprehensive selection of case law which addresses all aspects of the subject encountered on undergraduate courses.

Extracts have been chosen from a wide range of historical and contemporary cases to illustrate the reasoning processes of the courts and to show how legal principles are developed. The cases can either be analysed and discussed independently or, taken as a whole, the cases form chapters that provide a sound understanding of the modern law of contract.

The casebook is fully supported by an Online Resource Centre, which provides:

  • Exercises and guidance on reading cases
  • Guidance on answering questions in contract law
  • Self-test questions and answers
