A proper understanding of the law of contract requires far more than the mere rote learning of principles extracted from cases. Contract law is a practical subject and students will understand it best by applying contractual principles to practical, life-like scenarios.
Student’s Guide to the Law of Contract fosters such an approach. It is filled with examples, exercises and problem-setting questions that increase gradually in level of complexity. This will facilitate discussion in study groups and during lectures. Spaces for the completion of exercises and summaries of prescribed cases enable students to engage actively with the learning material in one basic source.
Student’s Guide to the Law of Contract can be used by lecturers as a primary teaching tool for undergraduate students to improve their students’ knowledge and understanding of basic contractual principles, develop their ability to reason and stimulate their interest in the subject. Likewise, students will find it useful as an aid additional to lectures and more advanced contract law textbooks.
