The leading New Zealand text for students studying commercial law


Format: ePub


This textbook provides students with a robust general understanding of the law, including how New Zealand laws are made and amended, and the legal significance and effects of the Treaty of Waitangi. The fundamentals of the law relating to contracts, consumers, torts, property and privacy are also discussed. Examples are used throughout to illustrate and clarify the discussion.

This edition features expanded coverage of changes to the law in relation to contract and land, a revised layout that provides a natural progression through the topics and an updated case appendix containing the basic facts, issues and reasons behind the decisions in key and current cases.

The LexisNexis Understanding series is renowned for its straightforward layout and logical flow between topics, enabling students to navigate the text with ease. It also includes practical tools and reference materials ideal for revision and exam preparation, such as: clear language; business and real-life examples; diagrams and flow charts; key learnings at the beginning of each chapter; part and chapter summaries; and a comprehensive glossary of key terms.
