Paul Richard’s Law of Contract, now in its ninth edition, presents a trusted account of the main principles of contract law, using clear explanations and contemporary applications.

In an area of law that is growing in complexity and importance, a firm grasp of the fundamental principles is essential. This book provides this necessary foundation whilst also considering recent proposals for reform so that the reader can gain an understanding of the overall development of the law.
