The book takes a very practical approach to teaching Contract Law including real-world examples and 'Hot Topic' discussion points, illustrating how Contract Law can interact with other aspects of the core curriculum such as Tort Law.

New material includes: - Rewritten section on interpretation in the light of decisions of the Supreme Court including Wood v Capita Insurance Services Ltd (2018). - New section dealing with negotiating damages and an account of profits in the light of the decision of the Supreme Court in Morris-Garner v One Step (Support) Ltd (2018). - Updated section on the rule in Foakes v Beer in light of the decision of the Supreme Court in Rock Advertising Ltd v MWB Business Exchange Centres Ltd (2018), albeit the Supreme Court found it unnecessary to resolve the point. - Other important new cases: include Swynson Ltd v Lowick Rose LLP (damages and third party losses) Goodlife Foods Ltd v Hall Fire Protection Ltd (exclusion clauses) First Tower Trustees Ltd v CDS (Superstores International) Ltd (the scope of section 3 of the Misrepresentation Act 167) and Ali v Petroleum Company of Trinidad and Tobago (implied terms).
