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.
