The Modern Law of Contract is a clear and logical textbook, written by an experienced author team with well over 30 years’ teaching and examining experience.

Fully updated to address the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and recent key cases in Contract Law, it offers a carefully tailored overview of all key topics for LLB and GDL courses. The book also includes a number of learning features designed to enhance comprehension and aid exam preparation, allowing the reader/user to:

  • understand and remember core topics: boxed chapter summaries offer a useful checklist for students, while illustrative diagrams help to clarify difficult concepts;
  • identify important cases and assess their relevance: ‘Key case’ features highlight and contextualise the most significant cases;
  • reflect on how contract law operates in context: highlighted ‘For thought’ features ask students to consider ‘what if’ scenarios, while ‘in focus’ features offer critical commentary on the law;
  • consolidate learning and prepare for assessment: further reading lists and comparison website directions at the end of each chapter direct you to additional interactive resources to test and reinforce your knowledge.
Clearly written and easy to use, The Modern Law of Contract enables undergraduate students of contract law to fully engage with the topic and gain a profound understanding of this fundamental area.
