This new work contains the most current analysis of the English law of contract. Contract Law in Practice enables easy access to the essence of judgements, and includes clear explanations of the law, especially where the law is unsatisfactory, undecided, or lacks certainty. Written by Neil Andrews-an experienced author-this highly valuable book is essential for all commercial lawyers and anyone interested in this fundamental area of the law. With precise links to cases and important passages of the leading judgements, the analysis is founded in the words of the judgments themselves, enabling clear interpretation of their impact on the shape of the law and easy access to judicial discussion. The coverage is comprehensive, and emphasis is made upon interpreting and elucidating difficult or undecided topics. Substantial references to further reading throughout enable easy research for the reader. The author identifies six key principles of contract law: freedom of contract; objectivity; the contractual bond principle; estoppel; good faith and fair dealing; and the compensation principle. These principles support the analytical rigour of Contract Law in Practice and provide the framework in which the author clarifies difficult aspects of the law.
