The Law of Contract, now in its eleventh edition, is well established as the most thorough and perceptive treatment of contract law for students and as a source of reference for practitioners. The latest edition of Treitel explains and analyses the law of contract, and provides a detailed and clear examination of many areas of controversy and difficulty.

The text has been extensively rewritten to take account of more than 350 new cases and of much new legislation. The most significant of the new developments include:
* Discussion of a number of important decisions of the House of Lords such as Royal Bank of Scotland v Etridge on undue influence, Equitable Life v Hyman on implied terms and Director General of Fair Trading v First National Bank on unfair terms in consumer contracts
* Among decisions of the lower courts, the most significant are The Great Peace which has led to a reconsideration of the text dealing with the effect of mistake in equity, and Baird Textile Holdings v Marks & Spencer plc which raises many issues of contractual intention, consideration and estoppel
* Legislative changes include The Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999, The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000
