In this new textbook, Roger Halson's approach to the law of contract views a contract as a transaction with distinct phases. The result is an analysis of contemporary contract law that is both theoretically satisfying and practically useful. This unique approach brings into clearer focus two important episodes in the life of a contract: the negotiation phase and the modification phase - both of which are neglected or examined in a piecemeal way by traditional doctrinally-arranged texts.
The transactional approach better emphasises important inter-relationships between apparently distinct doctrines and so brings into clearer focus recent doctrinal developments by the courts and legislature. This approach is also informed by contextual, empirical and theoretical writing. Other parts of the law of obligations (e.g. restitution, tort and estoppel) are discussed in so far as they impinge on contract law.Contract Law is an original, challenging and engaging textbook.;It presents contract law in a new structure which is both easy to comprehend and which reflects the insights of much new learning.
The end result is a practically-satisfying textbook for contemporary contract law courses.Contract Law will be essential reading for LLB courses in universities (Foundation subject) and CPE/Diploma courses (core subject). It also covers the requirements of the University of London (External) LLB, ILEX courses and postgraduate LLMs in contract law
