This course normally covers some significant topics of the law of contract which are usually omitted from the compulsory contract law courses, LAWS1071 Contracts 1 and LAWS1072 Contracts 2 (eg illegality; agency). It then deals in depth with a selection from the following list of topics which are very important in commercial practice, but are dealt with somewhat briefly in the initial courses: uncertainty and incompleteness in contract formation; economic duress; termination for breach and frustration; privity and third party rights; interpretation). The course constantly considers the increasing impact of equitable principles, and of the law of restitution, on the common law of contract. There is likely also to be an examination of some leading theories on the nature and likely development of contract law.
