the case. With reference to different aspects of Law, write a letter to
each client providing sound advice. Your letter should comply with the
word count of 1000 with +/- 10% margin. You may use tables and
diagrams to support your report to illustrate the text. Word count
excludes the index, headings, information contained in tables,
references and bibliography. For academic purpose you must use

1. Bob goes into Sam’s bookshop and sees a book which he wants to buy on display. He
takes the book to the counter to pay for it, but Sam tells him that the copy of the book is his
only copy and that he has already sold it to Carl, but forgot to remove it from the display. Is
Sam entitled to refuse to sell Bob the book? Taking this scenario in to consideration explain
the importance of the essential elements required for the formation of a valid contract.
Discuss the impact of different types of contract and analyse terms in contracts with reference
to their meaning and effect (LO 1.1, 1.2, 1.3)

2. Barry goes into a park which is managed by his local council. He sees a notice which
states that chairs are for hire for 50p per hour. Barry pays the 50p and is given a ticket and a
chair. Later, the chair collapses under him, damaging his clothes. When Barry complains, the
attendant points to a clause on the ticket which states, No liability is accepted for any
damage or injury caused by the failure of any hired equipment. Are the council entitled to
rely on the clause? Taking this scenario in to consideration, apply the elements of contract in
given business scenarios, apply the law on terms in different contracts and evaluate the effect
of different terms in given contracts (LO 2.1, 2.2, 2.3)

3. Adam advertises a reward of £1000 for the first person to paddle across the English
channel in a bath from Dover to Calais. Brian sees the advertisement in the news paper,
purchases a bath, and sets out from Dover. On the same day, whilst Brian is in mid-channel,
Adam places another advertisement in the same news paper announcing that the reward is
being withdrawn with immediate effect. Unaware of this, Brian continues his voyage and
duly arrives in Calais. Brian then claims the reward. Adam refuses to pay. Is Brian entitled
to claim the reward? Taking this scenario in to consideration, contrast liability in tort with
contractual liability, explain the nature of liability in negligence and explain how a business
can be vicariously liable (LO 3.1, 3.2, 3.3)
