    Contract Law in Australia provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of contract law in Australia. The authoritative analysis includes detailed discussion of contract formation, terms, parties, vitiating factors, illegality, performance and breach, and termination. An emphasis on the remedial side of contract law, the easy to follow format, the book’s regular citation in the courts, copious references to secondary sources and a detailed index all combine to make it the ideal work on contract law for students and practitioners alike.

     

    The seventh edition continues the clear and concise style that has made previous editions so successful. All chapters have been revised to cover developments since the sixth edition, with many chapters restructured within a logical and coherent framwork. Developments include:

     

    • new Ch 2 (‘Default Rules, Commercial Construction and Good Faith’) 
    • Ch 12 (‘Construction Principles’) substantially rewritten
    • Discussion of recent High Court decisions, such as:

        o Paciocco v Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd (penalties)
        o Electricity Generation Corporation v Woodside Energy Ltd (reasonable endeavours) 
        o Commonwealth Bank of Australia v Barker (implied terms)
        o Crown Melbourne Ltd v Cosmopolitan Hotel (Vic) Pty Ltd (promissory estoppel and contract terms)
        o Clark v Macourt (damages)

    • Legislative changes, such as the extension of unfair contract terms regimes to ‘small business contracts’.
