Goode on Commercial Law 5th ed
Now in its fifth edition, Goode on Commercial Law is still the first port of call for the modern day practitioner with its theoretical and practical coverage of commercial law in both a national and an international context.
This highly acclaimed and authoritative text, which is regularly cited by all courts from the House of Lords (now the Supreme Court) downwards, combines a deep theoretical analysis with a practical approach which examines the theory in the context of typical commercial and financial agreements, both domestic and international. The work is replete with diagrams and specimen forms covering a wide range of transactions.
