In Principles of Australian Contract Law: Cases and Materials, the authors draw together the key decisions and relevant legislation that illustrate the development of legal principles underpinning Australian contract law. Cases are carefully selected, edited, and cross-referenced to the companion textbook, Principles of Australian Contract Law, to promote a deep understanding of the subject. Each case extract includes a summary of the most important elements — court, facts, issue, and decision — and helpful comments to assist readers to understand why that case is important and the principle to be drawn from the decision. Relevant secondary sources are also included to expand critical thinking on many topics.
