Overview


Contract Law Directions is written in an informal and engaging style with an emphasis on explaining the key topics covered on English 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 color 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.
