Divergence and Reform in the Common Law of Contracts is the title of this year’s GW Law Review Symposium and anyone interested in contracts and/or comparative law will want to join us for it on Saturday November 19. Here is a summary from the official web site for the event (RSVP here):
This Symposium continues a tradition of biennial conferences that began at the University of Sheffield, UK in 2011, followed by a conference held at the University of Edinburgh in 2013. But this 2016 Symposium is not your grandfather’s contract law. Instead, this conference takes a 21st Century approach to comparative issues in contract law, examining the most pressing controversies, debates, and challenges currently shaping the United States and United Kingdom’s shared legal tradition in the area of common law contracts.
Symposium papers from the previous two gatherings have been published as books by Cambridge U. Press and Oxford U. Press; papers from the current symposium will be published in the GW Law Review.
Topics include: Comparative Law and Reform; The Share Economy; Remedies; The State of the Interpretation Debate; Good Faith; and Consumer Contracts
