Implied Terms in English Contract Law is a unique book dedicated to stating the law of England and Wales regarding the implication of terms into contracts. The law on this important subject is stated systematically and in detail, with the benefit of close analysis of the leading cases on implication at common law, by statute, by custom, trade usage, course of dealing and in fact.
Coupled with a consideration of the history of implied terms and theoretical considerations, this book will be an invaluable aid to academics, students and practitioners alike. It would also be a valuable resource for comparative lawyers in many jurisdictions in both civilian and common law.
