Q and A: Law of Contract 2007 - 2008 / Edition 6 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Blackstone Press
Modern contract law increasingly demands the analysis and application of sophisticated concepts which students often find difficult to grasp. The ideal study aid, Q&A Law of Contract gives students the opportunity to practice their exam techniques and evaluate and assess their progress. The book is divided into chapters covering each major topic on law courses, and contains approximately fifty questions and answers designed to test even the best prepared student. Each chapter contains an introduction focusing on important legal aspects, and diagrams are used to illustrate processes and procedures. After every question there is a commentary highlighting key points, followed by bullet-pointed answer plans, and finally a model answer. The authors discuss the most effective techniques for writing examination answers and tackling legal problems, showing exactly what the examiners are looking for.
This sixth edition has been substantially modified to take account of new case-law on the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999, the Law Commission Draft Bill on Unfair Terms in Contracts, and the new EU Regulation on Unfair Commercial Practices (No. 2006/2004) concerning unfair business-to-consumer practices. Moreover, the general updating of chapters includes the recent comments of the House of Lords on remoteness in Jackson and another v Royal Bank of Scotland, the helpful guidance given by the Court of Appeal in Murray v Leisureplay on distinguishing penalty clauses from liquidated damages clauses, and the continuing stream of cases on third party undue influence.
