Civil Law and Asian Cross-Border Transactions: Civil Law Concepts of Contract Law

MODULE 1

Civil Law Concepts of Contract Law
Date: 25 August 2020        Time: 3.00pm - 4.30pm          1.0 Public CPD Point 

 

After a brief introduction to the origins, history and propagation of the civil law of contract, particularly in Asia, we will look at how it is different from the common law: without a concept of consideration, offers with a deadline are binding; a more subjective approach affects the formation (ex: mistake, misrepresentation) and the interpretation of the contract; performance must be in good faith; remedies include specific performance (when possible) and penalty clauses which are allowed; and one can prove contracts by any means in commercial matters.

 

Objectives and skills targeted: acquiring knowledge of some of the basic concepts governing the formation, interpretation and performance of contracts in civil law jurisdictions.
