Commercial Law: Text Cases and Materials has been an indispensable and hugely popular resource for students of law and business management for over ten years. Combining extracts from cases and other materials with substantial commentary and explanatory text, Sealy and Hooley provide context for the extracts, question their significance, and provide an authoritative guide to commercial law. This book follows a very clear structure, discussing topics covered on commercial law courses not as separate entities, but as part of a coherent whole, enabling students to easily make links between different areas of the law. Fundamental concepts such as ownership, possession, and good faith run through the book, offering common themes connecting each area. The authors supply extensive commentary on key decisions, helping students to focus on the most important areas; also provided are European and American examples, ensuring that students have access to a comparative analysis of commercial law as it operates throughout the world. Praised for the clarity of writing and mapping well onto a variety of courses, the emphasis throughout this book is on practical application - how is the law used in practice? Diagrams and questions enable students to check progress and consolidate understanding. Whilst maintaining the previous edition's successful structure and style, this edition takes into account all of the major changes in the law since 2003 and provides extracts from recent key cases. Sealy and Hooley's Commercial Law brings together the best features of a textbook and casebook, making it an invaluable one-stop resource.

The law of personal property covers a very wide spectrum of scenarios and has had little detailed scrutiny of its overarching structure over the years. This is a shame. It is a system and can best be understood as a system. Indeed without understanding it as a system, it becomes much more difficult to understand. This new textbook is intended to provide a comprehensive and yet detailed coverage of the law of personal property in England and Wales. It includes transfer of legal title to chattels, the nemo dat rule, negotiable instruments and assignment of choses in action. It also looks at defective transfers of property and the resulting proprietary claims, including those contingent on tracing, the tort of conversion, bailment and security interests. By bringing together areas often scattered throughout company law, commercial law, trusts and tort textbooks, it enables readers to see common themes and issues and to make otherwise impossible generalisations across different contexts about the nature of the concepts English law applies. Throughout the book, concepts are explained rigorously, with reference to how they are used in commercial practice and everyday life. The book will be of use to students on undergraduate commercial law courses, or related LLM courses, as well as those on integrated property law courses, and particularly specialised personal property modules. It will also be useful to academics and practitioners working in the area.

Personal Property law is probably the most important and yet the most neglected and least understood aspect of English law. Historically, Personal Property law was neglected because it was commonly, but misleadingly, regarded as belonging to a number of entirely separate legal categories. The recent growth of specialist literature in this area is indicative of the increasing awareness of the importance of personal property law by practitioners.Personal Property: Text and Materials addresses the problem of the near invisibility of personal property law within the law curriculum by producing an integrated casebook that covers both the underlying philosophy and concepts of personal property law and the impact of evolving business practices on the development of the law. The book is inspired by a determination to produce a concept orientated approach to the study of personal property law, avoiding the specific-contract approach to the subject that has hitherto impoverished the study of the concepts and philosophy of personal property law in the United Kingdom.The book is aimed at undergraduate law students in commercial law courses as well as students in integrated property law courses. By considering all the branches of law that touch commercial transactions such as equity, trusts, property law and restitution, Personal Property: Text and Materials, is also ideal for students studying postgraduate commercial law programs who may or may not have qualifying law degrees.

The book aims to explore the remedy of damages in international sales transactions. Its focus is on the international contract law instruments such as the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts, and the Principles of European Contract Law. The issues addressed in the book include: the basis for the right to claim damages, definition and purpose of damages, the idea of limiting damages, principles underlying the award of damages, classification of losses and heads of recoverable losses, causation, foreseeability, mitigation, standards of proving losses and methods of calculating and determining the amount of damages. The book draws on the experience of some major legal systems in dealing with contract damages as well as on the body of cases and scholarly writings on the international instruments. In doing so, the book attempts to provide a justification for the existing rules on damages, highlights the problems in their interpretation and application, and proposes solutions to the existing problems in the light of relevant policies and goals pursued by the international instruments. The work will be of interest to practitioners involved in international commercial transactions, scholars and students interested in international commercial and comparative contract law.
