Samenvatting

Reflecting the most recent changes in the law, the second edition of this popular textbook provides a fully updated, comparative introduction to the law of contract. Accessible and clear, it is perfectly pitched for international students and courses with a global outlook.

Jan Smits approaches contract law on the basis of common principles and methods without being tied to a particular jurisdiction or legal culture. Notable updates include consideration of the 2016 reform of the law of obligations in France and the 2015 UK Consumer Rights Act, as well as substantial new coverage of work on contracts and third parties.

Key features:
- introduces key principles by comparing solutions from different jurisdictions, illustrating for students the international nature and substance of contract law
- draws from a wide variety of sources including German, English, French and Dutch law, European and international instruments, and examples from Central and Eastern Europe and Islamic contract law
- focuses on legal method as well as substantive law
- attractive and accessible design with text boxes, colour and graphics to help students navigate easily and identify key information.

With its innovative approach and engaging design this textbook has proved an essential companion to introductory courses on contract law across a multitude of jurisdictions throughout Europe and beyond.
