Every breach of contract gives rise to a right to claim damages, but not every breach confers a right of termination. The first part of this unit analyses the concept of breach of contract - the concept of standard of duty and the law's requirements for proof of breach. The balance of the unit is concerned with the circumstances in which breach of contract does confer a right of termination. From a remedial perspective this means that the unit is primarily about self-help - enforcement of a right (termination) rather than a remedy (damages).The unit includes a detailed consideration of express provisions for termination ("termination clauses"), their drafting, exercise and consequences.
