Contract Law Essentials: Module 4 — Quasi-Contracts & Specific Contracts

About this Course

In this course we teach you the principles applicable to quasi-contracts and specific contracts. Quasi-contracts, also now known as unjust enrichment law, is dealt with in the first chapter. The remaining chapters deal with specific contracts, i.e. indemnity, pledge, bailment, agency and guarantee. Like the other modules in this course here too we cover the law school syllabus.

This course provides access to all the relevant sections, assignments, examination pointers and the full text of relevant syllabus cases from SCC Online. The assignments will enable you to test your understanding of concepts. The examination pointers will give you a fair idea of questions and topics that are more likely to be asked in the examinations. The course is also linked to chapters from Avtar Singh's Law of Contract through EBC Reader. This, upon subscription to EBC Reader, provides quick access to relevant chapters from the book.

When a law is in its nature a contract, when absolute rights have vested under that contract, a repeal of the law cannot divest those rights.
