This title contains well-prepared briefs for each major case in Knapps's casebook on Contract Law. High Court briefs are written to present the essential facts, issue, decision and rationale for each case in a clear, concise manner. While prepared briefs can never substitute for the insight gained by actually reading a case, these briefs will help readers to identify, understand, and absorb the core "take away" knowledge from each case. Moreover, these briefs are followed by a useful legal analysis, which provides extra tips and contextual background about each case, connecting the case to the broader concepts being developed throughout the casebook. This book also supplies case vocabulary, which defines new or unusual legal words found throughout the cases. Finally, to enhance the reader's recall, there is a corresponding memory graphic for each brief that portrays an entertaining visual representation of the relevant facts or law of the case.

“Contract Law: A Commonwealth Caribbean Case Book” focusses on contract law, as articulated by the jurists of the Commonwealth Caribbean region. Case law from across the region has been combed to source the cases identified in this text. The jurisdictions from which the cases have emanated span the full breadth of the Commonwealth Caribbean region. The quality of the judgments referenced and the clarity of expression of the legal principles by our regional jurists should greatly assist the young law student in his journey through this interesting area of law. The Caribbean jurisprudence in the area of contract law operates within statutory and common law boundaries. The absence of statutory intervention in some situations and the presence of legislation in others, makes this area of law unique in its operation. While it is important for students to be able to conduct research, there is a need for Commonwealth Caribbean resource material. This book seeks to achieve this objective. The wide body of contractual principles have been categorised into identifiable elements of contract law so as to guide a student through this vast area of law. I hope to underscore the essential nature of contract law to not only the law student’s arsenal of legal expertise, but also to his eventual practice of law. It is hoped that this book can assist in developing a genuine interest and understanding of contract law.
