  6. The Turning Point in Private Law

The authors pose a suggested list of basic principles for a new, ecological legal system in which private law represents a valid ally for defending our future. Learn More

  7. Tenancy Law and Housing Policy in Europe

    Tenancy Law and Housing Policy in Europe

    Edited by Christoph U. Schmid
    Tenancy law has developed in all EU member states for decades, or even centuries, but constitutes a widely blank space in comparative and European law. This book fills an important gap in the literature by considering the diverse and complex panorama of housing policies, markets and their legal regulation across Europe. Expert contributors argue that that while unification is neither politically desired nor opportune, a European recommendation of best practices including draft rules and default contracts implementing a regulatory equilibrium would be a rewarding step forward.

  8. Comparative Contract Law

    Comparative Contract Law

    Edited by John O. Haley
    As cross-border transactions expand in our contemporary global economy, the significance of comparative contract law is evermore apparent.

Appreciation of the principal similarities and differences between the two major subdivisions of Common Law – the United States and the British Commonwealth – and Civil Law – French versus German law – has thus become imperative. Together with an original introduction by the editor this compilation of classic key papers by leading scholars endeavours to facilitate such appreciation and will prove an essential reference point for students, researchers and policymakers.

  10. Contract and Regulation

    Contract and Regulation

    Edited by Roger Brownsword, Rob A.J. van Gestel, Hans-W. Micklitz
    Contract and Regulation: A Handbook on New Methods of Law Making in Private Law sheds light on the darker side of contracts. It begins by exploring the ‘regulatory space’ in which projects are planned, deals are done, and goods and services are consumed, then shows how a ‘bottom-up’ approach can be adopted in order to view this transactional space through the eyes of contractors. The expert contributors explore modes of governance that do not fit nicely into traditional contract theory, paying special attention to three key examples: governance and codes of conduction, networks and relations, compliance and use.

This book engages with the legal implications of social media from public and private law perspectives and outlines how the law, in various legal sub-disciplines and with varying success, has endeavoured to adapt existing tools to social media.

  15. Comparative Contract Law

    Comparative Contract Law

    Edited by Pier Giuseppe Monateri
    This comprehensive Handbook offers a thoughtful survey of contract theories, issues and cases in order to reassess the field's present vision of contract law. It engages a critical search for the fault lines which cross traditions of thought and globalized landscapes. Comparative Contract Law is built around four main groups of insights, including: the genealogies of contractual theoretical thinking; the contentious relationship between private governance and normative regulations; the competing styles used to stage contract law; and the concurring opinions expressed within the domain of other disciplines, such as literature and political theory. The chapters in the book tease out the tensions between a global context and local frameworks as well as the movable thresholds between canonical expressions and heterodox constructions. Learn More
