Good Faith in Commercial Law

30 Jun 2016, All day

Since Yam Seng there has been a lively debate about whether and when there is to be implied into certain relational contracts an implied duty of good faith.

This lecture considers the application and content of such a duty:

  • From Yam Seng to Bristol Rovers: Trying to make sense of the recent cases.
  • What can we learn from other relationships in which judges and Parliament have established such a duty?
  • The influence of Arnold v Briton on the development of such a duty.
  • Conclusions about the duty and how to argue for and against it.

The seminar will be followed by drinks and canapĂ©at Hardwicke and the chance (if you wish) to watch the UEFA Euro 2016 Quarter Finals.
