The fourth edition of Goode on Commercial Law, updated by Ewan McKendrick, is a highly acclaimed work and is used extensively by both students and practitioners, both in the UK and overseas. It combines a deep theoretical treatment of personal property and commercial law with a penetrating analysis of key issues in typical commercial and financial transactions.

As part of its synthesis of theory and practice the book discusses typical contract structures to demonstrate how contractual relationships can be organised in different ways to produce or avoid a desired legal result.

This new edition brings the text up-to-date with Companies Act 2006 changes, developments in the law of security, case law on charges and all other developments.
