Commercial and consumer law in Ireland consists of several separate, but inter-related areas of law, including general contract law, specific types of trading contracts such as sale of goods, consumer protection legislation, the law of personal property and consumer credit law. Modern Irish Commercial and Consumer Law
is the only book available that brings together these separate strands of law to show how they work as a whole. In over 40 chapters, Professor Ellis provides a comprehensive work which covers:
- The different types of personal property which can be bought and sold, ranging from obvious tangible items like goods, to intangibles such as ‘contractual receivables' and ‘image rights'
- The reason why the use of exclusion clauses developed, and the judicial and legislative responses to them
- The distinctions between ownership and possession, and between assignability and negotiability
- The relationship between credit and security
- The privity of contract rule and third party rights; agency, negotiable instruments and regulation of intermediaries are dealt with in this context
Professor Ellis uniquely restates commercial law in the context of modern business practice, providing a thoroughly revised explanation of the subject which is both authoritative and accessible. An invaluable resource for all commercial lawyers and professionals working in commerce, as well as those studying for such positions.
