A uniquely practical approach to contract law; the problem-based focus helps students to unfold the problem, reveal the law, and apply to life.Using this new and innovative textbook, students are given a problem scenario to unfold; as they do this they will understand the questions and issues surrounding each area of contract law. As they explore the problem, they encounter clear explanations which reveal the key legal concepts underpinning the relevant topic, to help them understand the operation of the law.Further illustrations and references to the problem apply the law, enabling students to see for themselves how the law interacts with everyday life and business, giving them a deep and practical grasp of the law.Engaging and thought-provoking, this is the most practically applied contract law textbook.
T.T. Arvind is Professor of Law at Newcastle University. His research focuses on the history and social context of private law and he has a strong interest in developing problem-based and experiential approaches to teaching and learning in law.
