Review Quotes
Professor McCamus's The Law of Contracts is manifestly a labour of love. In its tone, style and overall approach it demonstrates the classic hallmarks of an experienced, caring and understanding teacher combined with the insights of a passionate and engaged legal scholar. It is essential reading for anyone with an interest in modern Canadian contract law and will undoubtedly see many future editions. - Richard Devlin (2006) 43 Can.Bus.L.J. 319-24 at 324
