Commercial Law offers a fresh, modern, and stimulating account of the subject, thereby helping students better understand this important area of law. It provides thorough coverage of all key aspects of the syllabus, including the law of agency, the sale of goods, international trade, and methods of payment, finance, and security. A range of learning features is employed throughout the book to encourage understanding of the law, and to demonstrate how the principles behind it play out in practical domestic and international commercial transactions. Practical, fictional case studies are referred to in example boxes throughout the book, demonstrating the types of legal issues and problems that the law is intended to regulate, and helping students to understand the context and practical application of the law. The book includes: regular case boxes throughout the text to highlight cases of importance, providing a succinct account of the material facts of the case, a clear account of the court’s decision and reasoning, and, where appropriate, commentary on the decision; key legislation boxes to help students understand which statutory provisions are of fundamental importance; and definitions of key terms, which appear in the margins the first time the term is used, thus ensuring that students are not confused by the terminology of the subject.
