The course builds upon the basic understanding of contract law acquired in Contract (LS1520), although it is important to understand that the topics are approached from a more theoretical perspective, and will critically evaluate at an advanced level, a number of themes introduced in LS1520. The course approaches a selection of current problems in contract law doctrine from the theoretical, comparative and philosophical perspectives. The topics will vary annually but will include the philosophical basis of contract law, contractual formation, good faith, promise, contractual remedies, factors vitiating consent, contractual interpretation and risk management through contract (exclusion clauses, penalty clauses etc).
