Contract Law Reviews

Excellent material for understanding the law of contract including very helpful diagrams and all based on meticulous research - 10 out of 10 for innovation and for making contract law accessible and interesting to students. * Anca Chirita, Lecturer in Law, Durham University *
The book is composed in a way that encourages and stimulates learning. The volume is original in style and written in a lively and student-friendly manner. The clear way in which contract law is explained throughout and augmented by easy to follow diagrams and tables helps not only to explain key concepts but also to summarise work that has already been covered. * The Law Teacher *
An excellent book which provides a comprehensive grounding in the fundamentals. The analysis of legal doctrine is second to none, and is aided with innovative tables and diagrams. * Prince Saprai, Senior Lecturer, University College London *
For anyone looking for an accessible account of contract law, you should seriously consider this latest edition of Mindy Chen-Wishart's Contract Law. It provides an accessible and clear account of the law. The flowcharts and diagrams [...] are worth their weight in gold. * Student Law Journal *
A modern and accessible text which meaningfully engages students and contains thought-provoking analytical features. * Emma Teare, Senior Lecturer in Law, Teesside University *
Thoughtful and erudite in analysis - this is an interesting, critical and clearly accomplished text. * Rob Jago, University of Surrey *
My favourite of the contract law textbooks with a clear structure, elegant style and extensive use of visual aids. * Scott Styles, School of Law, University of Aberdeen *
The text is very well structured, clearly written and cogently argued. This is an ideal introduction for the beginner and a valuable resource for the finalist. * Stefan Enchelmaier, Professor of European and Comparative Law, University of Oxford *
