DESCRIPTIVE: The course aims at presenting the notion of contract, contract law and obligation in the United Kingdom. It builds on knowledge students have acquired from first year (introduction of common/civil law, public/private law, and business law)… It will provide a general and sophisticated knowledge of the central legal issues in contract law today. It draws on a range of key legal concepts and will incorporate comparisons with French contract law/droit des obligations.The course opens with an introduction on the idea and origins of UK contract law. It quickly turns to three major chapters: The first chapter is devoted to contract formation. It will be studied during six double seminars during the first term. The contents of contracts (chapter 2) and breach and remedies for breach (chapter 3) are both studied during the second term for three and three double seminars.
All our courses are taught to small groups of students (25 to 35) on a weekly or bimonthly basis.
