Fantastic commercial textbook!,
This review is from: Commercial Law: Text, Cases, and Materials (Paperback)
This is a fantastic textbook for commercial law. I found the layout and structure of the book to be very coherent and it was easy to find my way through to the information I required. The structure of the book is: here is the law, here is the authority to support it. This is not done so coherently in most legal textbooks. The book has very well selected extracts from the dicta of every relevant case for any given area in commercial law, as well as helpful extracts from journals. I found that using this book meant that I did not need any other sources (eg Westlaw, another textbook), as Sealy and Hooley provide everything you may need in the one book. The commentary on the law and cases is written with great clarity and academic debates, both settled and unsettled, are covered very well.
I am studying commercial law at undergraduate level and find the book compliments my studies very well, however I can imagine it would also be very useful for postgraduate students and practitioners alike. For me, this textbook has been the most useful and easiest to understand (whilst not skimping on the detail) during my three years of studying law. I highly recommend it!
