Abstract

The third edition of Svantesson on The Law of Obligations provides a practical guide and an instructive overview of the law of obligations within common law and equity, coupled with the legislative provisions of the newly applicable Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) replacing and repealing the previous Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth). This third edition provides a timely review and an informative commentary making it the perfect guide for anyone with an interest in consumer law, contractual law and the law of obligations.

The third edition of Svantesson's Law of Obligations investigates the central topics incorporated in the law of obligations, including:
- the simple explanation of terms;
- the effect of vitiating factors under contract law;
- the statutory prohibition against e.g. misleading and deceptive conduct and against misrepresentations; and
- The relevant economic torts e.g. the tort of passing off.

In an increasingly globalised world international legal borders become blurred. Svantesson includes a crucial comparative analysis by examining the approaches of international jurisdictions to the law of contracts and obligations including the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, New Zealand, Sweden, the People's Republic of China and the United States of America.
