This fully updated second edition of Contract Law is engaging and accessible, and aimed at students on core LLB and GDL courses. Combining comprehensive coverage of the curriculum with carefully developed pedagogical tools, the authors help students build their knowledge, gain an enhanced understanding of how the law works and develop their ability to apply this knowledge and understanding in assessment situations.
The Routledge Spotlights series brings a modern, contemporary approach to the core curriculum for the LLB and GDL, which will help students:
- move beyond an understanding of the law;
- refine and develop the key skills of problem-solving, evaluation and critical reasoning;
- discover sources and suggestions for taking your study further.
By focusing on recent case law and real-world examples, Routledge Spotlights will help you shed light on the law, understand how it operates in practice, and gain a unique appreciation of the contemporary context of the subject.
