Casebook on Contract by Hon. Andrew Burrows

Book Description

This new casebook by Professor Burrows offers undergraduate law students the ideal way to discover and understand contract law through reading highlights from the leading cases. Designed to be used in conjunction with a contract law textbook, it covers the entire undergraduate contract law course in a series of clearly presented and carefully-structured chapters. Professor Burrows provides an expert introduction to each topic and his succinct notes and questions seek to guide students to a proper understanding of the cases. A principled analysis is also given of the relevant statutes. 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, and does not cover all aspects of the law of contract but only those most commonly found in the undergraduate curriculum. So, for example, it does not cover illegality given that that subject is now not regularly taught to undergraduates. Part one: The Formation of a Contract, covers: Offer and Acceptance; Certainty and Intention to Create Legal Relations; and Consideration and Promissory Estoppel. Part two: The Terms of a Contract, covers: Identifying the Terms; Interpreting the Terms; and, Statutory Control of Unfair Terms. Part three: Remedies for Breach of Contract, covers: Termination; Damages; and, Direct Enforcement. Part four: Privity and Third Party Rights, covers Privity and Third Party Rights. Part five: Factors Allowing Escape from a Contract, covers: Misrepresentation; Mistake; Frustration; Duress; and, Undue Influence and Exploitation of Weakness.
