Contract Law Directions

Fourth Edition

Richard Taylor and Damian Taylor

  • Contract Law Directions combines an informal writing style with engaging learning features to make it an ideal text for those completely new to the study of contract law
  • Key topics are not presented in isolation, but are set in the wider context of contract law as a whole to encourage an integrated appreciation of the law and an ability to connect ideas
  • Examples illustrate key concepts, which help to engage the reader by relating the theory to real-life experience and encouraging a grounded understanding of contract law
  • Problem and essay questions are provided at the end of every chapter with suggested answers on the Online Resource Centre. These encourage students to test and reinforce their own learning, and then provide guidance on how to tackle a question and structure a reasoned and balanced answer
  • Diagrams and flowcharts, presented in a fresh colour design, provide visual representation of key concepts
  • Accompanied by an Online Resource Centre, providing an extensive range of resources. For students, there are suggested approaches to answering the questions at the end of each chapter, updates, weblinks and a glossary of key terms. For lecturers, there is a test bank of approximately 200 questions with answers and electronic versions of all the diagrams in the book.
  • Fully updated with new case law, including: Durham Tees Valley Airport v bmibaby plus Jet v Blackpool airport (CA) on Certainty, Samarenko v Dawn Hill House (CA) on breach of condition and Omak Maritime v Mamola on the measure of damages.
