This contracts casebook includes introductions that quickly orient students within unfamiliar territories. Cases present both the doctrine applied and, in some instances, the shortcomings of that doctrine. The authors express their disagreement about basic issues, so that students can experience the range of possible in modern contract law. To save time, the authors avoid extensive citation of academic scholarship except as it pertains to the cases being studied. Certain traditional subjects¬ such as offer and acceptance and consideration¬ are reduced to a minimum, while more contemporary subjects¬ such as form contracts and the modern concept of unconscionability¬ are considered at length, as is arbitration and the Supreme Court's historic decision in AT and T Mobility v. Concepcion.

In this edition, the general shape and structure of the book have been left untouched, although as with previous editions, the whole work has been completely updated and modernized by replacing old and outdated examples with more modern questions with which the student may be assumed to be more familiar. The aims of the book remain unchanged: to supply a basic introduction, not merely to the law of contract, but also to theories and policies and ideas underlying the subject. In addition, the author has constantly resorted to a modern historical approach, giving the student some sense of how the law has developed over the past 100 years or so. widely recognized as one of the most interesting and innovative books to have been published in the last 25 years, An Introduction to the Law of Contract remains as popular today with students and their teachers as it was when it was first published.

The sixth edition has been revised to place the law of contract in a modern context and to account for recent developments in the law, as well as those in academic thinking and writing. Addressing European influences and including perspectives from comparative law, this remains a stimulating and authoritative exposition of the modern law of contract.

This book gives an introduction to the English law of contract. The third edition has been fully updated to cover recent developments in case law and recent statutes such as the Consumer Rights Act 2015. However, this new edition retains the primary focus of the earlier editions: it is designed to introduce the lawyer trained in a civil law jurisdiction to the method of reasoning in the common law, and in particular to the English law of contract. It is written for the lawyer - whether student or practitioner - from another jurisdiction who already has an understanding of a (different) law of contract, but who wishes to discover the way in which an English lawyer views a contract. However, it is also useful for the English law student: setting English contract law generally in the context of other European and international approaches, the book forms an introductory text, not only demonstrating how English contract law works but also giving a glimpse of different ways of thinking about some of the fundamental rules of contract law from a civil law perspective. After a general introduction to the common law system - how a common lawyer reasons and finds the law - the book explains the principles of the law of contract in English law covering all the aspects of a contract from its formation to the remedies available for breach, whilst directing attention in particular to those areas where the approach of English law is in marked contrast to that taken in many civil law systems.

Written by Adam Kramer, a commercial barrister and academic, the second edition of the acclaimed The Law of Contract Damages is the most comprehensive and detailed treatment available of this important dispute resolution area. The first edition is regularly cited in the courts and academic literature, and this new edition has been substantially updated to take account of over 150 recent decisions. To aid understanding and practicality of use, the book is primarily arranged by the type of complaint, such as the mis-provision of services, the non-payment of money, or the temporary loss of use of property, but also includes sections on causation, remoteness and other general principles. At all points, the work gathers together the cases from all relevant contractual fields, both those usually considered-construction, sale of goods, charterparties, professional services-and those less frequently covered in general works-such as SPAs, insurance, and landlord and tenant. It also refers to tort decisions where relevant, including full coverage of professional negligence damages, and gives detailed explanation of many practically important but often neglected areas, such as damages for lost management time and the proof of lost profits. The book provides authoritative and insightful analysis of damages for breach of contract and is an essential resource for practitioners and scholars in commercial law and other contractual fields.

The law of estoppel is a modern concept with a medieval label. It concerns the enforcement of obligations outside the law of contract and tort; we might call it the law of consistency, which obliges people to stand by things they have said. This is a book for lawyers, but will be of interest to other readers as a picture of how the law has tried to deal with its own shortcomings. The book will be of interest practitioners and scholars in other jurisdictions particularly Australia and New Zealand.

Written primarily for lawyers and law students in the Common law world, this book assumes no prior knowledge of French law. Beginning with an introductory account of the characteristics of French law and the French legal system, it looks at the principles of the French law of contract from the standpoint of a Common lawyer familiar with the problems with which the law of contract has to deal in a modern Western society. Its arrangement follows that of the French law, but the French concepts and rules are set out in relation to their counterparts in the Common law. Consideration is given to recent developments in matters such as the obligation to disclose information, third party rights in 'groups of contracts', unfair contract terms, and the seller's liability for latent defects.

The Common Law is one of the two major and successful systems of law developed in Western Europe, and in one form or another is now in force not only in the country of its origin but also in the United States and large parts of the British Commonwealth and former parts of the Empire. Perhaps its most typical product is English Contract Law, developed continuously since the birth of the common law almost wholly by judicial decision. Although in its modern form primarily a product of the nineteenth century, the common law of contract as we know it developed around the action of assumpsit which evolved at the close of the fourteenth century, and many of its characteristic doctrines first emerged in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This book, which takes the story up to 1677 (the date of Statute of Frauds) forms the first part of the history of contract law, and is written primarily from a doctrinal standpoint.

An oft-repeated assertion within contract law scholarship and cases is that a good contract law (or a good commercial contract law) will meet the needs and expectations of commercial contractors. Despite the prevalence of this statement, relatively little attention has been paid to why this should be the aim of contract law, how these 'commercial expectations' are identified and given substance, and what precise legal techniques might be adopted by courts to support the practices and expectations of business people. This book explores these neglected issues within contract law. It examines the idea of commercial expectation, identifying what expectations commercial contractors may have about the law and their business relationships (using empirical studies of contracting behaviour), and assesses the extent to which current contract law reflects these expectations. It considers whether supporting commercial expectations is a justifiable aim of the law according to three well-established theoretical approaches to contractual obligations: rights-based explanations, efficiency-based (or economic) explanations and the relational contract critique of the classical law. It explores the specific challenges presented to contract law by modern commercial relationships and the ways in which the general rules of contract law could be designed and applied in order to meet these challenges. Ultimately the book seeks to move contract law beyond a simple dichotomy between contextualist and formalist legal reasoning, to a more nuanced and responsive legal approach to the regulation of commercial agreements.
