Contract Law Directions is written in an informal and engaging style with an emphasis on explaining the key topics covered on 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 to the content of undergraduate contract law courses, this book provides clear coverage of all the main topics.
Helpful features, including numerous diagrams and flowcharts, are presented in a fresh colour design, and clear headings guide the reader's progress through the subject. Topics are illustrated using examples and cases that relate to real-life experiences, to provide students with an understanding of the context.
The fourth edition has been fully revised and updated to include all recent developments in case law and legislation.
The book is accompanied by an extensive range of online resources. For students, there are suggested approaches to answering the questions at the end of each chapter, updates, weblinks and a glossary of key terms. For lecturers, there is a test bank of approximately 200 questions with answers and electronic versions of the diagrams in the book.
