This second edition of the text offers a thoroughly updated and comprehensive account of the law of contract including chapters on Assignment, Bailment and Guarantees and Indemnities, and presents an in-depth exposition of these and other topics in Contract Law in prose that is clear, concise and readable. Case authorities are drawn from the United Kingdom and other common law jurisdictions where relevant, to supplement the extensive reference to local cases in the context of the Contracts Act 1950 and related legislation. The authors have drawn on their extensive experience in professional legal practice, teaching contract law in diverse jurisdictions and a track record of academic research and publication in Malaysia and elsewhere. A salient feature of the text is that detailed case summaries and extracts from leading judgments are set out in support of the legal principles involved. This approach not only assists the student in appreciating the underlying legal processes but also to use the book as a ‘stand-alone’ text.
