I was in the same boat as you. I've found this really useful as an introduction to problem questions. It's aimed at A level and degree level, so stuff like OSCOLA referencing wont be necessary unless you go on to an LLB. I've looked elsewhere and most other books are Writing for Law type and don't specialise in PQs

Here's 6.
Vanessa owns a business that grows and supplies plants to garden centres for retail sale. She has recently become involved in a dispute with a local garden centre, House of Roses. House of Roses claim that Vanessa agreed to supply 3,000 “Princess” variety rose plants, to be delivered at the beginning of May 2020 in time for sale to their customers in the summer. Jim is the owner of House of Roses. The dispute arose in the following circumstances:

Both Jim and Vanessa are members of the local gardeners’ club, which meets once a month. During the September meeting, Jim was having coffee with Vanessa. He mentioned that he was concerned that every year the customer demand for Princess rose plants exceeded what House of Roses could supply. Vanessa said, “I’ll need to check, but I am sure I would be able to supply you with 3,000 plants at the beginning of May 2020 for £5,000. Would you be interested?” Jim replied, “Yes, let me know for definite when you can”.

A few days later, Vanessa sent Jim an email stating that she would be able to supply 3,000 Princess rose plants for £5,000. Vanessa said that if this was acceptable to Jim, he should reply by email within 14 days. 10 days after Vanessa sent the email, Jim sent an email of agreement to Vanessa. However, Vanessa had been having trouble with her emails and was no longer able to check her email account. Distracted with the pressures of business, she had opened a new email account, forgotten to tell Jim, and simply assumed that he had not replied within 14 days. Jim is now threatening to sue Vanessa for breach of contract.

Advise Vanessa as to any contract she may have entered into with Jim.

ANSWER BOTH PART A AND PART B. Both parts carry equal marks.

a) Spread-the-Sound Ltd are a local company in Burchester, whose business is to provide classical music lessons to local residents. They have recently launched an initiative encouraging local residents to get involved with classical music, with the eventual aim of attracting more pupils. Under this initiative, Spread-the-Sound Ltd promise to give local residents free tickets to local classical music concerts if the residents post their ideas on music on Spread-the-Sound’s website prior to the concert. The initiative has been highly successful and Spread-the-Sound has recruited many new pupils as a result of the interest generated by the free tickets.

Discuss the extent to which this initiative is contractual.

AND

b) Chris set up a new local shopping centre in August 2019. In his contract with the other businesses who rented units in his shopping centre, Chris is obliged to use “reasonable efforts” to decorate the centre appropriately for the Christmas shopping period. The aim was to make the centre attractive to customers during this period. In October 2019, Chris entered into a contract with Festival Ltd, who were specialist decorators, to decorate the shopping centre in time for the Christmas shopping period. Festival Ltd agreed to complete the Christmas decorations at the shopping centre by 1st December 2019. However, on 20th November, the project manager of Festival Ltd told Chris that they were running behind in their work and would not be able to complete the decoration at the shopping centre before Christmas. In response, Chris said that he would pay Festival Ltd a further £3,000 to finish the work on time. Festival Ltd have now finished this work on time and Chris is refusing to pay the extra £3,000.

Advise Chris as to his contractual obligations to Festival Ltd, if any. How, if at all, would your answer differ if Chris had promised to pay an extra £3,000 if Festival Ltd would not only finish the work on time but use a different type of decoration from the original plan that was more complicated to install?


Aisha is a professional dressmaker. She orders the fabric for her dresses from Fabric Supply, an internet-based company that sells a large range of high-quality fabrics that its customers use for making all types of clothing. She recently contacted Fabric Supply by email to order a particular type of silk. Aisha wanted this type of silk as she had used it many times before and found that it was excellent for making a particular type of formal ballgown. Fabric Supply replied to Aisha’s email and attached their standard order form. This included the price for the amount of silk that Aisha had specified. Unfortunately however, instead of writing the correct price of £2,000 for the complete order (which was the standard price for an order of this kind), Fabric Supply wrote £1,900. Aisha, assuming that she was simply getting a “good deal”, returned an acknowledgement of the order and transferred £1,900 to Fabric Supply’s account.

Fabric Supply immediately contacted Aisha and asked her to pay the remaining £100. Aisha refuses to do so, arguing that she has a contract with Fabric Supply for the supply of the silk for £1,900.

Advise Aisha. How, if at all, would your answer differ if Fabric Supply had mistakenly written £500 as the price of the order instead of writing £1,900?


Travel UK are a company that operates coach tours. Customers are able to book onto a particular tour using Travel UK’s website. On entering into the contract for the tour, a customer is required to pay an initial deposit. Customers are then required to pay the full price of the tour 7 days prior to departure. As part of the online booking process, customers are invited to view Travel UK’s standard terms and conditions. Travel UK’s website displays these terms and conditions on a separate page. This page contains a large number of terms in very small non-enlargeable print. The following terms are included:

i) Travel UK reserves the right to increase the tour price by 25% in the case of late payment of the full tour price.

ii) Travel UK accepts no liability for property damage caused by the negligence of Travel UK or its employees.

Travel UK operated a coach trip to London. Matilda booked onto the tour. However, she was one day late paying the full tour price. After the tour, Matilda received an email from Travel UK stating that she must pay an extra charge of 25% of the tour price. Matilda was upset by this and immediately disputed the charge. Travel UK pointed to term i) above and said that Matilda would have to pay the charge.

To make matters worse, whilst on the tour Matilda caught and damaged her coat in the coach door. This was the fault of Travel UK’s coach driver. Matilda wants to claim compensation from Travel UK. However, Travel UK say that they are not liable to Matilda for the damage to her coat.

Matilda claims not to have read either of the terms above.

Advise Matilda as to whether the above terms have been incorporated into her contract with Travel UK and as to any protection she may have under Part 2 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015.

Rivalli Trend Ltd (Rivalli) is a company that manufacture shoes. They are in the process of creating a new brand of men’s shoes. Rivalli does not have any in-house facilities for marketing their shoes. Consequently, they enter into a 5-year agreement with Market UK, a company that provides marketing services. Under this contract, Market UK’s obligation is to create a website to promote Rivalli’s new brand of shoes, and to design a general advertising campaign for the shoes. Rivalli’s obligations under the contract are as follows:

i) Rivalli agree to use its best efforts to assist Market UK in the creation of the website and advertising campaign.

ii) Rivalli will provide Market UK with access to company documents, on a monthly basis. (The documents are intended to provide Market UK with useful background information on Rivalli and their products, which may help them design advertising material).

iii) Rivalli agree to use only the marketing services of Market UK for the duration of the agreement, and not the services of any other marketing company.

One year into the contract, Market UK wish to terminate their contract with Rivalli for the following reasons: Rivalli have twice missed sending company documents. Furthermore, Rivalli regularly fail to respond to Market UK’s requests for meetings to discuss ideas for the website and advertising campaign. Consequently, Market UK have not been able either to create a website or to design an advertising campaign. To make matters worse, Market UK have recently heard that Rivalli have entered into an agreement with another marketing company. Market UK, who feel that they are “unable to do their job properly”, and worried about damage to their commercial reputation, seek to terminate their contract with Rivalli.

Advise Market UK.


Country Ltd specialise in the manufacture of fresh health food and drink. They regularly use a local delivery firm, Transport Ltd, to deliver their products to national retail outlets. Whilst Country Ltd have had no problems with Transport Ltd in the past, this month, Transport Ltd’s operations manager wrote to Country Ltd and informed them that Transport Ltd would be unable to make Country Ltd’s deliveries that month. They would have to wait for the following month.

This failure caused Country Ltd considerable difficulty. Country Ltd had a large batch of fresh milk products that spoiled as a result. Their retail customer for the milk also cancelled all their future orders with Country Ltd. This caused damage to Country Ltd’s trading reputation. Country Ltd also lost out on a very valuable contract to supply its products to several branches of a national gym.

Advise Country Ltd as to their possible remedies. How, if at all, would your answer differ if Country Ltd could have obtained timely delivery of the goods from an alternative company, but had carelessly left it until too late to organise delivery of the goods by a different transport company.

NB: Please assume a breach of contract on the part of Transport Ltd for failure to deliver and do not discuss the law of frustration in your answer to this question
