Legal Aspects of Purchasing and Supply provides an up-to-date, concise account of legal principles relating to purchasing and supply, incorporating all of the relevant changes in legislation. Beginning with the basic principles of contract and commercial law, the book then analyses the 'battle of the forms', legal tenders, breach of contract, and the implied rights of the buyer under the law. The new position on competition law is discussed. Material focusing on contractual terms and conditions and how they can strengthen the rights and remedies available to firms is reinforced by sections on legal issues and intellectual property rights. Written in an approachable style, the text makes technical legal issues accessible to those with no previous legal experience, and quickly enables a high level of understanding. Its practical advice on addressing case studies in law examinations makes it an invaluable support to candidates studying for the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply and other professional qualifications, and those on business degree courses. READERSHIP: Students on business degree courses and those studying for the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply, and other professional courses.
