This book discusses the principles and rules of general contract law in England & Wales. It examines the key points and rules of contract law, starting with the formation of the contract and ending with the remedies for breach of contract. In this it follows the structure most used in contract law modules at universities. Please also note that this book takes into account developments of the law up until July 2021.

Contract law is a core module in legal higher education in the UK. Contract law is also an important basis for many other law modules including maritime law, company law, commercial law, and arbitration law. This book gives a clear oversight of the main issues of key contract law topics. It summarises the issues in a concise and precise manner and uses practical examples throughout to clarify how the law is applied. Key cases are used to explain and illustrate the principles of the law. This book is an ideal companion guide for exam revisions. The chapters follow a question-and-answer model that makes it easy to find information on a specific issue. The chapters end with a problem-solving scenario on key issues of the topic and a list with key cases which will be helpful in preparing for examinations. At the end of the book, you find a further reading list and a set of sample multiple-choice questions which can be used to help prepare for the first stage of the SQE examination that will be introduced in September 2021.

“Contract Law is generally taught as a first-year subject which could be a daunting subject. This book helps students to revise this subject effectively as it brings together all key areas of contract law that a student should be familiar with when preparing for examinations, drafting coursework, and preparing for seminars. It examines the key points and rules of contract law, starting with the formation of the contract and ending with the remedies for breach of contract. The book is written in plain language in the form of questions and answers. It is detailed without being too long, succinct but covers all key cases and developments in the area. The multiple-choice questions at the end of the book are very beneficial for students preparing for the SQE and exams that follow a similar format. I would recommend this book wholeheartedly.”

– Dr Aysem Diker Vanberg, Lecturer in Law, Goldsmiths, University of London
