Book Description

5 July 2012 0199644845 978-0199644841 4
Contract Law offers a unique and highly innovative approach to contract law, utilizing numerous diagrams to complement the academically rigorous text, which illuminate the subject and bring it to life.

Written by a leading contract lawyer with extensive teaching experience, the book employs a lively and critical style to explain the intricacies of contract law and the questions that arise during the life of a contract. The book's use of 'pause for reflection' and 'counterpoint' boxes also encourages students to engage with the key debates, facilitating an appreciation of the more complex tensions surrounding this essential subject.

The book is accompanied by a comprehensive website to support the use of the book in teaching. Students can access the following resources: PowerPoint slides of selected diagrams with accompanying audio (voiced by the author) to show how these come together; updates; web links to key cases and legislation; guidance on answering the questions posed in the book; and two additional chapters on incapacity and illegality & public policy. Additionally, lecturers have access to a test bank, and electronic copies of the diagrams from the book.

A really helpful textbook that strikes a perfect balance between lay and professional descriptions/examples of contract law.
Similar to the Elliott and Quinn series and is proving tremendously helpful in my first year.
