Description

Law for Purchasing and Supply divides this complex area of the law into five logical parts: chapters introduce a topic area, explain the relevant law and give examples of how the law is applied in practice. This step-by-step approach enables the authors to maintain a comprehensive coverage of the subject, while ensuring it remains accessible.
Law for Purchasing and Supply, 3rd edition, has been fully updated to take account of new legislation and case law, including the introduction of the Competition Act 1998 and recent judicial decisions which, together with incoming European legislation, affect basic rights under the Sale of Goods. The relationship between civil and criminal law in this area is examined and the implications of future developments are discussed.
