Contract Law

Contract law is a complex but well defined area of law in Britain.

Areas for consideration under contract law include formation of contract (offer, acceptance, consideration, intention, etc.), capacity to form contract, contents (terms, exclusions, privity), vitiating factors (misrepresentation, mistake, duress, illegality, etc.), discharge (performance agreement, breach, frustration), and remedies (damages, performance, injunction, etc).
