Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Commercial Law has been written principally for students taking an elective in commercial law on the Legal Practice Course. It covers all the core areas of general commercial practice, including agency and distribution agreements; sale and supply of goods and services; international sales contracts; credit and security; bills of exchange; competition law; intellectual property law and commercial contracts including specimen sets of terms of sale and purchase. Diagrams and examples ensure that the practical aspects of the subject area are emphasized, while the detailed coverage gives students a good introduction to the practitioner style texts they will use once in practice. This text offers an excellent bridge between the notes, exercises and case studies provided by lecturers, giving students a well-rounded view of commercial law.
