This outstanding casebook on contract comprises a wide selection of cases and materials that not only illustrates the substantive law, but places it in its legal and commercial context. It demonstrates how the rules work both inside and outside the courtroom and how they may be used to guide agreements, as well as to settle disputes.

The new edition of Contract - Cases and Materials takes account of changes that have occurred in this area of law and brings the reader right up to date since the previous edition was published in 1995.
