A classic text, The Law of Contracts is routinely cited by the Supreme Court of Canada and other courts. This work looks beyond the surface rules of this complex area of law to identify the underlying conflicting principles, so you're never in doubt about their implications.


The Seventh Edition has been revised and fully updated to incorporate all the latest developments in contract law.


What’s New:

  • Analysis of the groundbreaking 2014 Supreme Court of Canada decision in Bhasin v. Hrynew which held that that there is a duty of honesty in the performance of all contracts. (this is a very important Supreme Court of Canada case that has gained a lot of attention)
  • An analysis of all important decisions from Canada and commonwealth countries since the Sixth Edition
  • All chapters have been reviewed and updated
