A COLLEGE tutor is celebrating after having his first book published.

Daniel Rahnavard’s textbook for undergraduates explores contract law and is part of the Course Notes series published by Routledge.

Daniel, 28, a public services tutor at Kirklees College, developed the book to help students revise effectively, understand case studies and answer simple questions.

Daniel, who lives at Brighouse, said: “It’s the first time I’ve written a book, but I’m always looking for a new challenge and this was a big one.

“I’ve got a lot on my plate already, so fitting in a 70,000-word book has been hard work, with lots of late nights and working during my holidays.

“I’ve produced something that will hopefully benefit lots of students for years to come.”

Daniel added: “Seeing the book go on sale online and in bookshops is very special.

“Contract law is one of the foundations of studying law. We make contracts all the time, often without realising it and sometimes with everything at stake.

“The book aims to provide the key principles of contract law and lends itself as an extremely useful revision aid for exams.”

Daniel teaches law as part of the college’s public services courses. He studied the subject himself at Huddersfield University and went on to Manchester Metropolitan University to qualify as a barrister.

Before joining the college, he worked for Walker Morris, the biggest commercial law firm outside London.

Now in the second year of his PhD, Daniel is a practising barrister.

With another book already in the pipeline, Daniel hopes to lecture in law at university in the future.
