Agency: Law and Principles 4th editionOxford University Press has published the fourth edition of Agency: Law and Principles by Dr Roderick Munday.

Questions of agency regularly arise in the work of commercial practitioners. Agency: Law and Principles addresses these questions by offering clear and accessible analysis of the principles of agency law, as well as detailed explanation of the Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations of 1993.

Forensic analysis of case law is combined with a practical approach to the law which accurately reflects modern commercial realities, considering the application of agency principles according to particular classes of agents operating in the major commercial sectors. Areas discussed include actual and apparent authority of an agent, agency of necessity, want of authority and ratification looking at the legal relations between principal and agent, and between third party as well as the relations between agent and third party, sub-agency and termination of agency.

This fourth edition has been updated to include all significant new case law and legislation, while also considering the impact on the principles of agency law.
