Description

The Modern Law of Contract is a clear and logical introductory textbook, written by a leading author and lecturer with over thirty years teaching and examining experience.

Offering a carefully tailored overview of all key topics for LLB and GDL courses, this tenth edition has been thoroughly updated and presents learning features that will help students to:

  • Understand and remember core topics: boxed chapter summaries offer a useful checklist for students, while illustrative diagrams help to clarify difficult concepts
  • Identify important cases and assess their relevance: ‘Key Case’ features highlight and contextualise the most significant cases
  • Reflect on how contract law operates in context: Highlighted 'for thought' features ask students to consider 'what if' scenarios, while ‘in focus’ features offer critical commentary on the law
  • Consolidate learning and prepare for assessment: the book’s Companion Website presents chapter-by-chapter Multiple-Choice Questions; a Flashcard glossary; contract law skills advice; PowerPoint slides of the diagrams within the book; and sample essay questions.

Clearly written and easy to use, The Modern Law of Contract enables undergraduate students of contract law to fully engage with the topic and gain a profound understanding of this fundamental area.
