Textbook on Contract Law

Eleventh Edition

Jill Poole

  • Provides a clear and wide-ranging introduction to contract law which maps well onto undergraduate and GDL courses
  • Presents the information in a straightforward style to allow students to gain a sound understanding of the main issues, while also addressing some of the complexities of contract law, to encourage a fuller appreciation of the subject
  • Each chapter includes summaries, questions, examples, and a guide to further reading, allowing students to check their understanding and to conduct efficient and well-directed further study
  • Supported by an Online Resource Centre that provides a testbank of multiple choice questions, updates on the law, and guidance on successful exam technique, ensuring students have access to the most up-to-date information, as well as acting as an additional learning resource
  • Suitable to be used as a stand-alone textbook, or in conjunction with Poole's Casebook on Contract Law, making it an essential resource for students
  • Enhanced explanations of the points and issues surrounding contract law, which many students find tricky, enable students to establish a solid foundation of understanding right from the start of the course of study
  • A revised introduction places greater emphasis on recent developments, particularly recent developments such as the European Common European Sales Law (CESL) and Consumer Rights Directive (CRD), and ensures that students are aware of the context in which the current law of contract is set
  • A significant number of new cases showing the most important developments in the area of contract law have been incorporated into the new edition of this textbook, including: RTS Flexible Systems Ltd v Molkerei Alois Muller GmbH & Co KG; Rainy Sky SA v Kookmin Bank; AXA Sun Life Services plc v Campbell Martin Ltd; Omak Maritime Ltd v Mamola Challenger Shipping Co Ltd, The Mamola Challenger; Springwell Navigation Corp v JP Morgan Chase Bank (formerly Chase Manhattan Bank); and Sylvia Shipping Co Ltd v Progress Bulk Carriers Ltd and other post-Achilleas cases
