Adopting a distinctive two-in-one text and casebook style, Australian Contract Law: Principles and Cases concisely sets out general principles of contract law explained and illustrated through key cases. After the statement of principles, a case note provides the salient facts, t...he issue, and the decision of the court. This is followed by key extracts of relevant parts of the judgment which have been carefully selected to enable students to analyse case law and learn from first principles. The book contains 24 chapters of topics covered in contract law courses set out in four parts: Formation of Contract, Terms, Avoidance, and Discharge and Damages. Each chapter provides two sets of questions: Essential Questions for revision, and Practice Questions for problem solving hypothetical contractual disputes. References to journal articles facilitate further study and extended reading. The discussions and commentaries of case law and statutory materials include recent cases of the High Court such as: Pipikos v Trayans, 2018 (part performance) Thorne v Kennedy, 2017 (undue influence, unconscionable conduct) Ecosse Property Holdings Pty Ltd v Gee Dee Nominees Pty Ltd, 2017 (construction of contracts) Crown Melbourne Limited v Cosmopolitan Hotel (Vic) Pty Ltd, 2016 (collateral contract, estoppel) Simic v New South Wales Land and Housing Corporation, 2016 (rectification) Written with the needs of students in mind, two other features have been included to help students critically engage with the materials: Sample Sale of Goods Contract Guide to Answering Problem Based Questions in Assignments and Examinations The author, May Fong Cheong, is a Senior Lecturer at the Thomas More Law School, Faculty of Law and Business, Australian Catholic University, and Visiting Fellow at the Faculty of Law, University of New South Wales.
