This book analyses in depth situations where a contract cannot be enforced because to do so would result either in an illegal act or be against public policy. Its incisive exploration of a complex area helps practitioners find creative ways of using the field to their advantage.

This new edition takes a fresh and up-todate view of illegality based on a steady stream of important High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court decisions, in areas such as the enforceability of indemnities against illegal acts, consequences of statutory prohibitions, effects of fraud, and effect of race discrimination on legal process. It also examines the recent Law Commission proposals in this area.

  • Provides accessibility to a complex area of the law
  • Highlights potential novel arguments for challenging and examining contracts
  • Deals at length with the topic of restraint of trade
  • Considers the effect of criminal activity upon the enforceability of a contract
  • Covers illegality as it relates to employment law
  • Examines relief from the consequences of illegality
  • Includes a series of worked examples grounding the often elusive subject matter in practical experience
  • Incorporates new coverage of important Scottish decisions on illegality.
  • Features extensive coverage of Commonwealth case law, suggesting new solutions to problems
  • Examines in detail the Law Com 320 report by the Law Commission on the Illegality defence.
  • Looks at the new statute dealing with forfeiture, the Estate of Dead Persons Act 2011
