LWN301 Principles of Australian Contract Law

Unit synopsis

Although grounded in principles of English common law, Australian contract law has, like many other areas of Australian law, developed a distinctly Australian slant, particularly in the last 20 years. These emerging principles, as well as the more fundamental contract law concepts, will be explored in this unit. Where appropriate, emphasis will be placed on the legal principles applicable in Queensland.
