Contract Law : Principles and Context
Publication Date: 12 September 2019
Contract Law: Principles and Context presents the development of contract law through a considered selection of cases that are both authoritative and used as factual examples to explain the law.
The text introduces readers to the nature and range of contracts, the process for making a contract, rights and duties, adjustments to contracts, vitiating factors and unfair conduct, ending contracts, and remedies and restitution. The text considers the historical development of contracts through case law and legislation, then takes the reader to particular issues with contracts as they might arise in real life and navigates a legal pathway through them.
Written in a clear and engaging style, Contract Law provides a fresh, topical and accessible account of the Australian law of contract, and is an invaluable resource for contract law students and practitioners.
