Cover Blurb - Sale of Goods 10th edition
The latest edition of this influential book gives a full and critical account of the law of sale of goods in the United Kingdom. It has the rare distinction of being a textbook that is at once highly readable and of great authority.
This tenth edition has been brought up to date with legislative and common law changes that have taken place over the last five years. It also incorporates new material on software sales law and e-commerce law. Reflecting the increasing divergence of Scots and English law in this area, the book now includes a treatment of the law as it applies in Scotland. The new edition analyses the development of UK sales law as it moves away from its common law roots as a result of European and domestic legislation, and evolves along separate consumer and commercial law pathways. The prospects for e-commerce to provide a counter trend towards an international consumer common law are also examined in a completely new chapter on e-commerce law.
The Sale of Goods is suitable for undergraduate LLB options in sale of goods and commercial law including the University of London (External) LLB and also for postgraduate LLM courses in commercial law and international trade law. The book is also highly recommended for the Bar Vocational Course paper on sale of goods and provides an authoritative point of first reference for practitioners of commercial law.
