Seventh Edition

Richard Taylor and Damian Taylor


  • Just the right amount of detail to gain a complete understanding of the topic, conveyed clearly
  • Law in context: with scene-setting introductions and highlighted case extracts, the practical importance of the law becomes clear
  • When and how to critically evaluate the law: students will be introduced to the key areas of debate and given the confidence to question the law
  • Deepen and test knowledge: visually engaging learning and self-testing features aid understanding and help students tackle assessments with confidence
  • Elevate their learning: with the ground-work in place, students can aspire to take their learning to the next level; the authors provide direction on how to go further

New to this Edition:

  • New material in this edition includes several Supreme Court cases and a number of other significant Court of Appeal and High Court decisions, including for example, MWB v Rock Advertising (2018) (Supreme Court) (consideration and variation), Sheikh Tahnoon v Kent (HC) (2018) (Lawful Act duress), Fulton Shipping v Globalia (Supreme Court) (2017) (mitigation and collateral benefits) and a trio of cases on construction of exemption clauses; Transocean Drilling v Providence (CA) (2016) (contra proferentem), Persimmon Homes v Ove Arup (CA) (2017) (contra proferentem), Impact Funding v Barrington (Supreme Court) (2016) (Exemption of negligence).
  • The 'Digging deeper' feature, supporting readers to deepen their legal understanding, has been further developed e.g. in dealing with the Supreme Court's recent restatement of the role and purpose of "negotiating damages" in Morris-Garner v One Step(2018).
