8. Enforcing Promises  

Celebrated for their conceptual clarity, titles in the Clarendon Law Series offer concise, accessible overviews of major fields of law and legal thought. This chapter examines a range of Equity's incursions into the Common Law of contract. Because of these interventions, the landscape of contract law is broader and more varied than it might otherwise have been. The chapter discusses five different Equitable strategies that give the flavour of Equity's various forms of interference. These are overriding the need to comply with formalities; avoiding privity requirements; re-examining consideration; implying terms; and Equity's ability to anticipate or secure the Common Law outcome.
