Product Description

Written in plain English and updated to reflect the current state of the law, Introduction to Contracts, 5th Edition demystifies contract law without resorting to legalese, extensive and often confusing case analysis, and lengthy case citations. Ideal for law students as well as non-commercial lawyers, this book offers a big-picture overview of how contract law functions in Canada’s common law jurisdictions and how it relates to other areas of law, such as torts and restitution.

Accessible, Comprehensive and Up-To-Date
Divided into five sections, this resource starts with a general overview of contract law and then covers the lifecycle of a contract:

  • The elements necessary for the formation of a contract
  • The legal mechanism for the enforcement of the promises contained in the contract, including who can enforce them and how
  • The content and discharge of the contract, including the categorization and analysis of the terms
  • Reasons and ways to challenge or contest the contract, including a discussion of the possible results of doing so
  • Remedies available when the obligations in the contract remain in place but are not performed by one of the parties

What's New In This Edition

  • Addresses a number of recent Supreme Court of Canada decisions and the significant changes to the law on good faith and the duty of honest performance, unconscionability and intention to create legal relations
  • The chapter on Frustration considers the possible impact of a pandemic on a contract
  • The chapters on Determining the Terms of the Contract and on Illegality have been thoroughly revised
