Quick Reference Card: Contract Law I, written by Emeritus Professor John Carter, clearly yet authoritatively summarises important principles, cases and legislation relating to contract law in Australia. It is complemented by the companion Quick Reference Card Contract Law II to together cover all the major topics in this complex area.
This card includes the formation of contract, terms of the contract and consumer guarantees, construction of the contract, capacity to contract, privity of contract and illegality of contract. Its companion card Contract Law II covers vitiating factors, performance and breach of contract, discharge for breach, discharge by frustration, damages, recovery of sums fixed by the contract, restitution and specific performance and injunction.
The Quick Reference Card makes an ideal study aid both for classroom and exam use and is an excellent tool for practitioners needing a ready-reference on contract law in Australia. The laminated A4 pages are designed to be folded into an easy-to-handle reference.
