This is the second, revised, edition of Professor Burrows' casebook, offering undergraduate law students the ideal way to discover and understand contract law through reading highlights from the leading cases. It has been brought up to date, incorporating extracts from a number of leading cases decided since 2007. Designed to be used in conjunction with a contract law textbook, it covers the undergraduate contract law course in a series of clearly presented and carefully-structured chapters. The author provides an expert introduction to each topic and his succinct notes and questions seek to guide students to a proper understanding of the cases. The relevant statutes are also set out along with a principled analysis of them. In addition to cross-references to further discussion in the leading textbooks, an innovative feature is the summary of leading academic articles in each chapter. The book is designed not to overwhelm students by its length but covers all aspects of the law of contract most commonly found in the undergraduate curriculum.
