 The book “Contract Law (Easy Law Series)" by Dr. Avtar Singh, is the first book of the “Easy Law Series” project which will be brought out on all the major subjects of law. The main aim of this series is to give you standard texts, which give you the correct and updated law, important cases and statutes in an easy to understand language in a concise manner.


The present work is a book of less than 300 pages presenting the main provisions of contract and specific relief laws. Illustrations appended to the sections of some of the Acts have been eliminated and legal decisions have also been narrated in very short so as to bring out the crux of the matter. The subjects covered by the book though of a very extensive nature have been dealt with in a manner bringing out the rich legal literature on the subjects in very few words. It will prove most handy for quick and comprehensive study of the subject.


The work is remarkable from the legal point of view – crisp and complete. It shall prove very helpful to law students as well as advocates.
