In a self-serve type of transaction, who makes the offer and who accepts the offer?

Yes, when the shop accepts, only there is a contract Did Boots breach s18 (1) of the Pharmacy and Poisons Act 1933? NO, there is no offering and acceptance. Exercise 2.4 The following question is an example of a problem question, which is the type of question the final exam is mainly comprised of. While browsing in a second hand shop, Jane notices two apparently identical chests of drawers. One chest of drawers is a genuine antique and the other is a reproduction or imitation. The price tags ($4,000 and $200 respectively) have been accidentally swapped so that Jane believes that she can buy the antique (normally $4,000) for $200. She tells the shop owner that she will buy the antique for $200 and produces the money for her purchase. The owner realises that a mistake has been made and insists that the price should be $4,000. He therefore refuses to sell the antique to Jane. Jane seeks your advice as to her rights.

Advise Jane whether a contract exists between her and the shop owner. Issue: was there offer and acceptance? A contract Rules: According to Pharmaceutical …, customer makes the offer, when they communicate to shop keeper, shop accepts the offer only contract is form. Apply: When Jane pulls out the 200, she is making an offer. Shop keeper refuse to sell, he is rejecting the offer. Conclusion: She doesn’t have a contract. Displaying of goods is not an offer, customer makes the offer. Exercise 3.1 Prior to 1984, Australian courts adopted the “common law rules of statutory interpretation”, which were the “ literal rule ”, the “ golden rule ” and the “ mischief rule (see Parker and Box, pages 58-59) 1) In your own words, define each of the common law rules above, citing cases as examples where relevant. In 1984, the Australian Parliament and the Victorian Parliament amended and passed their respective statutes, exercising their undeniable right to dictate to the courts how legislation should be interpreted in future. The “statutory rules of interpretation of statutes” now prevail over the “common law rules of interpretation of statutes”.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
