Contracts: Cases and Commentaries
Stephanie Ben-Ishai and David R. Percy
The Contracts casebook of choice for over 40 years, this eleventh edition consists of a critical survey of important cases and commentary in contract law, reflecting a period of intense doctrinal development by the Supreme Court of Canada. Authored by law professors from across Canada, this book is designed to serve as a versatile teaching tool, with extensive notes and questions throughout the text. This edition offers introductory teachings on the interactions of Indigenous and Aboriginal law with the common law of contract. The wide variety of topics discussed includes: offer and acceptance, certainty of terms, enforcement of promises, privity of contract, contingent agreements, exclusion clauses, mistake, frustration and remedies. Each chapter provides detailed commentary, case analysis and extracts, clear presentation of the different approaches to contract law and relevant references to the legislation of Canada’s jurisdictions. In order to facilitate research and study, learning objectives, a detailed table of contents and an indexed table of cases have also been provided.
