“The consultation process on the proposal to establish a pan-European unified law of contract is gathering pace. Various political bodies have indicated that the wheels should be set in motion for the implementation of this project by the end of 2011. Reactions have been mixed, with British lawyers being, on the whole, negative about the proposals; but momentum seems to be gathering nonetheless. This talk will address:
– What are the proposals?
– How have these proposals come about?
– What would be the benefits of having a European law of contract?
– What would be the risks of having a European law of contract?
– What does the future hold?”
