    In this 35th edition of Chitty on Contracts, the editors have not only brought the account of the law up to date but have expanded its coverage and have sought to make it more accessible.

    New developments:

    • The Chapter on Consideration has been split into two: Chapter 6 now deals with the doctrine of consideration itself and the new Chapter 7 (Estoppel) contains a separate and fuller account of the various kinds of estoppel, some of which can provide a substitute for consideration.
    • Chapter 18 (Exemption Clauses) contains a new and detailed explanation of the case law on “reasonableness” under the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977.
    • Chapter 19 (Illegality and Public Policy) has been reorganised and expanded in the light of cases on the effects of illegality following the decision of the Supreme Court in Patel v Mirza.
    • Chapter 24 (Death and Bankruptcy) contains an expanded section on the effects of personal insolvency on contracts and a new section on the effects of corporate Insolvency.
    • Chapter 46 (Restrictive Agreements and Competition) has been revised and reorganised in the light of Brexit, to focus on the competition law of the United Kingdom, though with copious references to the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union where that remains relevant in interpreting and applying UK competition law.

    All developments in relevant legislation and case law that were available up to 31st July 2023 have been included, and some later cases. In particular:

    Legislation

    • Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Act 2023
