Om boka

This best-selling textbook by Ewan McKendrick QC provides a clear account of the basic rules of contract law, while also introducing current debates about the nature, scope and functions of the law and discussing wider controversies surrounding the basic doctrines.

Straightforward, engaging and stimulating, Contract Law has been revised and updated to reflect various developments in the law, such as Supreme Court and Privy Council decisions on certainty of terms and remoteness of damage, and the effect of Brexit on long-term premises leases.

It is essential reading for all students taking undergraduate and GDL, CPE or equivalent courses in contract law: ‘Hot topic’ discussion boxes situate learning in the topical, while summaries and exercises at the end of each chapter provide opportunities for measuring progress.
