    I have my first ever MOOT in two weeks which is part of my overall Legal Skills grade for this year. I won't go into the scenario facts but basically I am representing the Respondent (Mr Smith) on this point:

    'Even if there was a contract and so Mr Smith refunded £342, Mrs Andrews would not be able to recover the difference of the £308 loss she incurred by not being able to successfully complete her contract. The appellant (Mrs Andrews) appeals to the Court of Appeal, contending that there was a unilateral offer that she had accepted. The respondent (Mr Smith) cross-appeals, contending there was no contract'.

    What point of law am I arguing here?! Does it have anything to do with Promissory Estoppel? Someone please helpppp.

    It sounds like offer and acceptance and whether the offer was a unilateral contract but without all the facts it's impossible to say.

    Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Co. might be a good place to start.
