Law for Purchasing and Supply divides this complex area of the law into five logical parts: chapters introduce a topic area, explain the relevant law and give examples of how the law is applied in practice. This step-by-step approach enables the authors to maintain a comprehensive coverage of the subject, while ensuring it remains accessible. Discussion questions together with suggested solutions are given in each chapter to reinforce learning.

Guidance to further reading appears at the end of each chapter. Examples are drawn from a broad range of sources, ensuring excellent breadth and depth of coverage. Law for Purchasing and Supply, Third edition, has been fully updated to take account of new legislation and case law, including the introduction of the Competition Act 1998 and recent judicial decisions which, together with incoming European legislation, affect basic rights under the Sale of Goods.

The relationship between civil and criminal law in this area is examined and the implications of future developments are discussed. This book is ideal for degree students of purchasing and supply and other undergraduate law courses as well as CIPS students.
