Without assuming prior legal knowledge, books in the Directions series introduce and guide readers at undergraduate level through key points of law and legal debate. Questions, diagrams, and exercises help readers to engage fully with each subject and check their understanding as they progress. Contract Law Directions is a comprehensive guide, now in its fifth edition, to all aspects of contract law. It is structured in four parts. Part One looks at the creation of obligations. It considers agreement, intention to create legal regulations, and consideration and estoppel. Part Two is about contents and borders and looks at positive terms, exemption clauses, and misrepresentation. Part Three examines defects in terms of mistake, duress, undue influence, and unconscionable bargains. The final part explains finishing and enforcing obligations. It analyses frustration, damages, specific remedies, and privity and the interests of third parties.
