Contents of Contracts and Unfair Terms

English | ISBN: 0198850425 | 2021 | 688 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Studies in the Contract Laws of Asia provides an authoritative account of the contract law regimes of selected Asian jurisdictions, including the major centres of commerce where limited critical commentaries have been published in the English language. Each volume in the series aims to offer
an insider’s perspective into specific areas of contract law – remedies, formation, parties, contents, vitiating factors, change of circumstances, illegality, and public policy – and explores how these diverse jurisdictions address common problems encountered in contractual disputes. A concluding
chapter draws out the convergences and divergences, and other themes. All the Asian jurisdictions examined have inherited or adopted the common law or civil law models of European legal systems. Scholars of legal transplant will find a mine of information on how received law has developed after the
initial adaptation and transplant process, including the mechanisms of and influences affecting these developments. At the same time, many points of convergence emerge. These provide good starting points for regional harmonization projects.

Volume III of this series deals with the contents of contracts and unfair terms in the laws of China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. Typically, each jurisdiction is covered in two chapters: the first deals with
the contents of contracts and how contractual terms are identified and interpreted; the second deals with unfair terms, the situations where the law will interfere in matters of ‘unfairness’ relating to contract terms, and legal responses to unfair terms.
