Contract Law is an engaging and accessible new textbook aimed at students on core LLB and GDL courses. Combining comprehensive coverage of the curriculum with carefully developed pedagogical tools, the authors help students learn, gain an enhanced understanding of how the law works, and develop their ability to apply this newfound knowledge and understanding in assessment situations.

To be successful in assessments, students must be able to analyse and solve legal problems, while accurately and appropriately applying legal authority. The Spotlights series models these core skills alongside a full and thorough exposition of the substantive law.


"This is an invaluable resource for students, explaining the key areas of Contract Law in a very clear and structured manner. It also includes useful assessment tips and advice on analysing and answering questions, which will really assist students in their Contract Law assessments."

- Paul McConnell, Lecturer at Leicester University Law School
