Contract Law Directions

Eighth Edition

Richard Taylor and Damian Taylor

  • Understand the law in context: with scene-setting introductions and highlighted case extracts, the practical importance of the law becomes clear
  • Identify 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
  • Also available as an e-book with functionality, navigation features, and links that offer extra learning support
