This book provides invaluable assistance to all those facing coursework assignments or examinations in contract law. It offers students an easy method of identifying all the main points in a particular area, whilst teaching, by illustration, the skills needed to write good answers to contract questions.
The questions and answers cover all the main areas dealt with in undergraduate and PGDL contract courses. This edition, which contains several completely new questions, has been fully revised to take account of recent developments. The most important of these are the House of Lords decisions in: Royal Bank of Scotland v Etridge (No 2) (2001) (undue influence) and Farley v Skinner (2001) (damages for non-pecuniary loss), and the Court of Appeal decision in Great Peace Shipping Ltd v Tsavliris Salvage (International) Ltd (2002) (mistake).
In the area of contract formation, the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 and the European Directive on Electronic Commerce 2000 are both fully covered and the developing area of contracting over the internet is dealt with in detail.
