Contract Law Cases

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    I have two assigned textbooks for contract law. One is a textbook that has an overview of the principles, cases and statutes of contract law. The other contains extracts from cases and articles. I was wondering if it is necessary to read the case extracts. Some of them are quite lengthy and complicated. I was wondering if it is sufficient, in order to get a good mark in the exam, to just read the case summary on Westlaw for the relevant case, along with what my other textbook says about it.

    you need to read the academic articles on the points of law and uncertainties in order to get the top marks. i got a first but didnt really read the cases in full because it is so time consuming. you cannot rely on the textbook alone, even a detailed one will not have enough depth.
