Contract Law in Hong Kong is the first comprehensive textbook on this topic for more than ten years. The 16 chapters of the book cover all basic contract concepts in a reader-friendly style, which makes ample use of case illustration. Particular emphasis is placed on what makes Hong Kong law different from other common law jurisdictions. Attention is drawn throughout to the continuing significance of English case law in Hong Kong and the theoretical and practical reasons therefor. Emphasis is also placed on the substantial similarity in many areas between English and Hong Kong legislation and there is a useful "cross-referencing" glossary.
The book deals with all the core areas of Contract Law. The first two chapters introduce the major themes and explain the multiple sources of law in Hong Kong. The subsequent thirteen chapters cover the formation of a valid contract, its contents, "vitiating" elements, the consequences of illegality, the termination of contracts and remedies for breach of contract. The book concludes with an explanation of the doctrine of privity and proposals for reform of the privity doctrine in Hong Kong.
The book is intended primarily as a readable but comprehensive and authoritative text for Hong Kong law students. Practising lawyers and professionals who need to acquire knowledge on the topic, however, will also find this book useful and accessible.
