Contract Law in Australia, 7th edition 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. Chapter 2 (‘Default Rules, Commercial Construction and Good Faith’) is entirely new and Chapter 12 (‘Construction Principles’) has been substantially rewritten. Many other chapters have been restructured within a logical and coherent framework. Important cases discussed include High Court decisions such as Paciocco v Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd (penalties), Electricity Generation Corporation v Woodside Energy Ltd (reasonable endeavours) and Commonwealth Bank of Australia v Barker (implied terms). Legislative changes such as the extension of the unfair contract terms regimes to ‘small business contracts’ are also addressed.
