Contract Law

Description

A comprehensive and bestselling textbook on Contract Law that covers core areas such as the formation of a contract, what goes into a contract, how to enforce a contract and much more.

The book takes a very practical approach to teaching Contract Law including real-world examples and 'Hot Topic' discussion points, illustrating how Contract Law can interact with other aspects of the core curriculum such as Tort Law. This edition has been updated with important new developments in the field, such as on interpretation, and negotiating damages and an account of profits.

New material includes:

Rewritten section on interpretation in the light of decisions of the Supreme Court including Wood v Capita Insurance Services Ltd (2018)

New section dealing with negotiating damages and an account of profits in the light of the decision of the Supreme Court in Morris-Garner v One Step (Support) Ltd (2018)

Updated section on the rule in Foakes v Beer in light of the decision of the Supreme Court in Rock Advertising Ltd v MWB Business Exchange Centres Ltd (2018), albeit the Supreme Court found it unnecessary to resolve the point

Other important new cases: include Swynson Ltd v Lowick Rose LLP (damages and third party losses) Goodlife Foods Ltd v Hall Fire Protection Ltd (exclusion clauses) First Tower Trustees Ltd v CDS (Superstores International) Ltd (the scope of section 3 of the Misrepresentation Act 167) and Ali v Petroleum Company of Trinidad and Tobago (implied terms).



Written by one of the leading authorities on the topic, this book retains a critical edge and a student-friendly focus. It is essential reading for all students taking undergraduate and GDL/CPE courses in contract law.
