Goode on Commercial Law is 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.
