Written primarily for lawyers and law students in the Common law world, this book assumes no prior knowledge of French law. Beginning with an introductory account of the characteristics of French law and the French legal system, it looks at the principles of the French law of contract from the standpoint of a Common lawyer familiar with the problems with which the law of contract has to deal in a modern Western society. Its arrangement follows that of the French law, but the French concepts and rules are set out in relation to their counterparts in the Common law. Consideration is given to recent developments in matters such as the obligation to disclose information, third party rights in 'groups of contracts', unfair contract terms, and the seller's liability for latent defects.
