Law of Contact in New Zealand written by the trio of highly regarded and respected authors, John Burrows, Jeremy Finn and Stephen Todd, provides definitive coverage of the law of contract in New Zealand.

The comprehensiveness, depth of analysis and coverage and clarity of the discussion ensures that this is the first point of reference for the legal practitioner, law student and all those interested in this important field of law.

This new edition includes many new and significant cases and all relevant statutory developments. It builds on the exemplary standards set by previous editions.
