The aim of the course is to build on the knowledge students have gained in the core contracts courses. The specific focus of the course for this year will be the regulatory use of contracts and contract law. During the course we will study both how governments regulate contractual relations and how contracts and contract law are used to achieve policy goals. The course will be research-driven and the specific areas of study will be chosen to reflect current developments in contract law both in Australia and internationally. Such case studies will be used to reflect in greater depth on some of the fundamental principles and doctrines of contract law studied in the core course.
