Providing invaluable assistance to all those facing coursework assignments or examinations in contract law, this book presents the student with 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 the main areas dealt with in undergraduate and GDL/CPE contract courses. This edition, which contains five completely new questions, has been fully revised to take account of recent developments. These include: the House of Lords' decision in Jackson versus Royal Bank of Scotland (remoteness of damage); the Court of Appeal decisions in Apple Corps Ltd versus Apple Computers (offer and acceptance) Bramhill versus Edwards (implied terms); and, Brennan versus Bolt Burdon (mistake of law). Topics covered by new questions include the Law Commission's proposals for the reform of the statutory control of exclusion clauses and the issues relating to the illegal performance of contracts raised by the recent Court of Appeal decisions in the employment cases of Vakante versus Addey and Stanhope School and Wheeler versus Quality Deep Trading Ltd.
