Contract Law in Zambia: An Introduction covers all the relevant aspects of the law of contract in Zambia, in both statutory and common law. The book focuses on a range of topics, including the theoretical aspects, offer and acceptance, consideration, the intention to create legal relations, the terms of a contract, misrepresentation, duress and undue influence, void and illegal contracts, the discharge of a contract, and remedies for breach of contract.
The author covers important English case law and related developments. However, the author also examines the increasing number of cases decided by the Zambian courts, which ‘domesticate’ and build on English law, and therefore highlights the relevance of the local context and the changes that have occurred as a result of home-grown adjudication.
