Description

As cross-border transactions expand in our contemporary global economy, the significance of comparative contract law is evermore apparent. In addition the role of lawyers in transactional counselling as well as dispute resolution has become increasingly prominent. Appreciation of the principal similarities and differences between the two major subdivisions of Common Law—the United States and the British Commonwealth—and Civil Law—French versus German law—has thus become imperative. Together with an original introduction by the editor this compilation of classic key papers by leading scholars endeavours to facilitate such appreciation and will prove an essential reference point for students, researchers and policymakers.

Professor John O. Haley was on the faculty of the University of Washington School of Law from 1974 to 2000. He was an Affiliate Professor of Law and/or Visiting Professor of Law from 2003 to the present (2017).
