Description
'Law of Contract' is the heart of the legal framework for formation of trade, business and commercial transactions. It touches equally upon the lives of ordinary persons and the activities of small and big business. This branch of law deals with law relating to promises, their formation, performance and enforceability. It is a subject of interest of not only advocates and judges, but also of every one i.e., academicians, students, arbitrators, businessmen, corporate houses, accountants, administrators, etc. There is, perhaps, no subject which touches a person's life at more points than the Law of Contract. Its fundamental principles were evolved in England and took shape through judicial decisions over a number of centuries. In India, it was crystalised in the sections of the Indian Contract Act, 1872, which was based mainly on the English Common Law. Now, the Law of Contract consists of the Contract Act, 1872, Specific Relief Act, 1963, Sale of Goods Act, 1930 and Partnership Act, 1932. All these acts have been dealt with in these two volumes of 'Contract-I & IF in detail along with case law, illustrations and practical problems.
