  • Concentrates on topics common to the majority of undergraduate law courses
  • Goes through the life of a contract from formation through to discharge and remedies as well as dealing with the contents of the contract and vitiating factors
  • Focuses on UK common law but covers relevant EU law and makes comparisons with other common law jurisdictions
  • Includes topical and relevant practical examples to help draw out key principles
  • Contains a glossary of key terms at the beginning of the book
  • Includes references to further reading from relevant literature at the end of each chapter to enable students to expand their knowledge
