Judicial Techniques and the Law of Contract

Show Summary Details


The proper use of legal techniques in some contexts is of vital importance. This chapter explores a number of problems and cases in the law of contract with a view to illustrating a way in which the same problems can be dealt with by the use of differing legal techniques. It suggests that some of the academic controversies of recent times are, in reality, arguments about the use of these techniques. This chapter also considers the respective merits and demerits of some of the principal techniques in current use.
