Annotation: The objective of the course ‘Economic Analysis of Comparative Contract Law‘ is to allow the deepening of knowledge in the area of comparative contract law, which would enable students to deal with the legal and practical problems that arise in the course of formation and performance of the various business contracts with an international element, as well as to develop skills of applying methods of comparative legal analysis and economic analysis. Upon the completion of the course the students should be able to compare the core features of contract law in continental and common law systems in the following areas: formation, invalidity of contracts, interpretation, performance and defective performance of contracts, the rights of third parties, breach of contract and available remedies; they also should have the necessary knowledge to explain the main economic problems that are addressed by contract law rules, and to describe the alternative ways of tackling these problems as well as their advantages and disadvantages.
