Commercial Law: Text Cases and Materials has been an indispensable and hugely popular resource for students of law and business management for over ten years. Combining extracts from cases and other materials with substantial commentary and explanatory text, Sealy and Hooley provide context for the extracts, question their significance, and provide an authoritative guide to commercial law.
This book follows a very clear structure, discussing topics covered on commercial law courses not as separate entities, but as part of a coherent whole, enabling students to easily make links between different areas of the law. Fundamental concepts such as ownership, possession, and good faith run through the book, offering common themes connecting each area. The authors supply extensive commentary on key decisions, helping students to focus on the most important areas; also provided are European and American examples, ensuring that students have access to a comparative analysis of commercial law as it operates throughout the world.
Praised for the clarity of writing and mapping well onto a variety of courses, the emphasis throughout this book is on practical application - how is the law used in practice? Diagrams and questions enable students to check progress and consolidate understanding. While maintaining the previous edition's successful structure and style, this edition takes into account all of the major changes in the law since 2003 and provides extracts from recent key cases.

`Review from previous edition "The excellent structure and sheer variety of [Sealy and Hooley's] book must make its use an exceptional and pleasurable learning experience for students and mature lawyers at all levels...
...One can only conclude that this stimulating and scholarly book must become a sine qua non for students of commercial law, integrating so well the fundamental sources and materials with the authors' substantial explanatory text and commentary."'
