Contract theory

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Teachers of contract law vary significantly on whether they believe that theory should be taught as part of a contract law course, and, if so, how it should be taught. This chapter will offer an overview of different justifications for, and different approaches to, teaching contract theory. Also discussed will be the way that, sometimes, contract law professors teach (a kind of) theory, even when they do not intend to do so.
