Whether you’re new to higher education, coming to legal study for the first time or just wondering what Contract Law is all about, Beginning Contract Law is the ideal introduction to help you hit the ground running.

Adopting a clear and simple approach with legal vocabulary explained in a detailed glossary, Chris and Nicola Monaghan break the subject of Contract law down using practical everyday examples to make it understandable for anyone, whatever their background. Diagrams and flowcharts simplify complex issues, important cases are identified and explained and on-the- spot questions help you recognise potential issues or debates within the law so that you can contribute in classes with confidence.
