Following the success of the first edition, this is the fully updated second edition of A Restatement of the English Law of Contract. Designed to enhance the accessibility of the common law, the Restatement comprises a number of clear and succinct rules, fully explained by a supporting commentary, which set out the general law of contract in England and Wales. Written by one of the leading authorities in this area, in collaboration with an advisory group of senior judges, academics, and legal practitioners, the Restatement offers a novel and powerfully persuasive statement of the law in this central area of English law.
All lawyers dealing with the English law of contract, whether as practitioners, judges, academics, or law students, will benefit from this Restatement. The English law of contract is one of the most respected systems of contract law in the world and, by the device of a 'choice of law' clause, is often chosen by foreign commercial parties as the applicable law to govern their contract. One of the aims of the Restatement is for the reader, including those from civil law jurisdictions, to see quickly and easily how the different elements of the English law of contract fit together.
