Comparative Contract Law

3 ECTs / Semester / English

Introduce students to the law of contract in a comparative manner.
Students will gain a basic understanding of the nature of contracts, the underlying principles of contract law, and the law with respect to contract formation, the contents of the contract and the remedies for the breach of contract. The analysis will adopt the viewpoint of German, French and English law, as well as of some representative European soft law model rules, such as the Principles of European Contract Law ("PECL") and the Draft Common Frame of Reference ("DCFR").
