Chapters direct students to the most important decisions in case law and employ a two-level structure to integrate short judicial excerpts into detailed discussion and analysis. Exploration of the law's 'loose ends' strengthens students' ability to effectively analyse case law, and new end-of-chapter questions, which focus on both core aspects of the law and interesting legal loopholes, assist students in preparing for exams. Students are guided through chapter material by concise chapter overviews and a two-colour text design that highlights important chapter elements. Suggestions for further reading and a rich bibliography, which point readers to important pieces of contemporary literature and provide a springboard for deeper investigation of particular topics, lend further support for student learning.

The Late 20th-Century Reformation of Contract Law

During its classical period, American contract law had three prominent characteristics: nearly unlimited freedom to choose the contents of a contract, a clear separation from the law of tort (the law of civil wrongs), and the power to make contracts without regard to the other party's ability to understand them. Combining incisive historical analysis with a keen sense of judicial politics, W. David Slawson shows how judges brought the classical period to an end about 1960 with a period of reform that continues to this day. American contract law no longer possesses any of the prominent characteristics of its classical period. For instance, courts now refuse to enforce standard contracts according to their terms; they implement the consumer's reasonable expectations instead. Businesses can no longer count on making the contracts they want: laws for certain industries or for businesses generally set many business obligations regardless of what the contracts say. A person who knowingly breaches a contract and then tries to avoid liability is subject to heavy penalties. As Slawson demonstrates, judges accomplished all these reforms, although with some help from scholars. Legislation contributed very little despite its presence in massive amounts and despite the efforts of modern institutions of law reform such as the Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws. Slawson argues persuasively that this comparison demonstrates the superiority of judge-made law to legislation for reforming private law of any kind.

LLB courses in universities (Foundation subject) and CPE/Diploma courses (core subject). University of London (External) LLB. ILEX courses (para-legals).Postgraduate LLMs in contract law. This major new textbook on contract law is arranged around a transactional analysis. This brings into clearer focus two important episodes in the life of a contract - the negotiation phase and the modification phase. These two episodes are either neglected or examined in a piecemeal way by traditional doctrinally arranged texts. Throughout the book the transactional approach is informed by contextual, empirical and theoretical writing. It also discusses in depth other parts of the law of obligations (e.g. restitution, tort and estoppel) where they impinge on its subject. Overall, this is an original, challenging, academically oriented but also practically satisfying text for modern contract courses, reflecting modern economic reality.

The book concludes with an explanation of the doctrine of privity and proposals for reform of the operation of privity in Hong Kong.
