This is one in a series of introductory books providing readers with an overview of the most frequently encountered legal principles. This book presents an introduction to contract principles that apply in Hong Kong. The new edition has been updated to reflect the current state of the law and to include newer cases, both local and overseas. The organisational structure has been revised for easier comprehension while keeping to the sequence in which a legally binding agreement is usually encountered.

Contract Law in Hong Kong is an easy-to-understand reference book for students, practitioners, non-law professionals, and the general public.
