A complete guide to contract law in a single volume; author commentary, carefully chosen cases, and extracts from academic materials complement each other to give students all they need for their undergraduate study of the subject.

Comprising a unique balance of 40% text to 60% cases and materials, Contract Law: Text, Cases, and Materials combines the best features of a textbook with those of a traditional casebook.

The author's clear explanations and analysis of the law provide invaluable support to students, while the extracts from cases and materials promote the development of essential case reading skills and allow for a more detailed appreciation of the practical workings of the law.

The book is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre which includes:

  • Extra material with in-depth coverage of topics such as illegality and incapacity
  • Updates on recent developments in the law
  • Annotated web links to key sources of information on contract law
  • Self-test multiple choice questions and answers
