Book Description

10 Mar 2011 0199597200 978-0199597208 3
Contract Law Directions is written in an informal and engaging style with an emphasis on explaining the key topics covered on contract law courses with clarity. No previous knowledge is assumed, making this the ideal text for those encountering contract law for the first time. Logically structured in four parts and designed to match closely the content of undergraduate contract law courses, this book provides clear coverage of all the main topics likely to be encountered by undergraduate law students. Topics are illustrated using examples and cases that relate to real life experiences, to provide students with a grounded understanding of contract law. Useful features such as diagrams and flowcharts are presented in a fresh colour design and the many headings guide the reader's progress through the subject. The third edition has been fully revised and updated to include all recent developments in case law and legislation. It also features 'case close-up' boxes in each chapter, to highlight the significant facts and issues of particularly key cases. Online Resource Centre An Online Resource Centre accompanies the book, providing a testbank of multiple choice questions, for lecturers to use with their students; updates to the law; guidance on answering the end of chapter questions; glossary; diagrams from the book; and useful web links.

A good basic book detailing what you need to know about Contract Law. Light and slim so you can carry it around without breaking your back! Useful when completing coursework and for looking up key Contract Law cases that would otherwise be mind boggling!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful for the non-law student 25 Mar 2009
This book is excellent at explaining contract law to those who do not principally study law. It contains plenty of good case examples and explains concepts in wondeful detail. Highly recommended.
