This chapter begins with a discussion of the different forms and shapes of suretyships, and the diverse legal responses to them. It then addresses the question of whose interests should prevail. This is followed by discussions covering information disclosure and form-based requirements, intervention in the terms of the suretyship contract, legal rules affecting the context in which suretyships are agreed and enforced, and the constitutional dimension to the control exercised over private relationships, including contracts.
