The purpose of this book is to honour the influential and wide-ranging work of Professor Hugh Beale. It contains essays by twenty-five very distinguished authors, each of whom has worked with Professor Beale as a co-author, as a teaching colleague, during his time as Law Commissioner of England and Wales, or as part of the study groups working in Europe on contract and commercial law. The essays reflect different aspects of Professor Beale's interests. Some concentrate on English contract law, either from a historical or a current perspective, while others are focused on aspects of European contract law. There are four essays looking at current issues relating to security and financing, and, as befits a former Law Commissioner, three essays on law reform. The essays in the final section discuss trends in transnational and European commercial law. This book brings together the reflections of eminent writers from all over Europe on important issues facing contract and commercial law and will be of interest to all scholars and practitioners working in these areas.

'Essays in Honour of Hugh Beale' brings together the reflections of eminent scholars on important issues facing contract, consumer and commercial law, reflecting perfectly the facets of the very distinguished scholar they celebrate
...this is an excellent book. It is a fitting way to honour a popular man who has had such a positive and lasting impact on commercial and consumer law.
A great scholar needs to be honoured with a great book. The collection of essays edited by Louise Gullifer and Stefan Vogenauer in honour of Hugh Beale achieved the result ... this volume demonstrates that there are several reasons not to abandon a double, English and European, perspective on contract and commercial law ... the academic work of Hugh Beale is an example for future generations.
