International Contract Law: Principles and Practice (Not Offered in AY2022-2023)
Last Updated Date:   1 June 2021

5 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
Contract law today is transnational in nature, and can no longer be confined to arrangements between private entities sharing the same nationality and operating in the same jurisdiction. This course builds on the foundational course Law of Contracts. The costliest and most memorable contractual disputes involve States, State entities, or State-linked enterprises, and foreign nationals, as contracting parties. The introduction of States as permanent and powerful participants in economic life has led to the emergence of a body of law - international contract law - to regulate these prominent contractual arrangements. This course is for students who wish to learn more about the perks and perils of contracting with States, and anyone interested in transnational legal work in law firms, multinational corporations, non-profit organisations, government, and academia.
