The German Law of Contract : A Comparative Treatise Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Recently the contract section of the German Civil Code was amended after one hundred years of un-altered existence.

The German Law of Contract, radically recast, enlarged, and re-written since its first edition, now details and explains for the first time these changes for the benefit of Anglophone lawyers.

One hundred and twenty translated contract decisions also make this work a unique source-book for students, academics, and practitioners.

Along with its companion volume, The German Law of Torts, the two volumes provide one of the fullest accounts of the German Law of Obligations available in the English language.

Through its method of presentation of German law, the book represents an original contribution to the art of comparison.

An additional feature of the Contract volume is the way in which it reveals the growing impact which European Directives are having upon the traditional, liberal, contract model, thereby bringing German and English law closer to each other, especially in the area of consumer protection.
