duration 1 week

The CSECL International Summer School will investigate three novel, liberal contract law theories with teachers at the cutting edge of private law theory. The participants will explore ‘Contract Law in a Liberal Society’ and will have opportunities to present, and link the teaching materials to, their own research.

Course leader

Lyn Tjon Soei Len

Target group

Masters students, Graduate/PhD students, Postdoctoral researchers and other junior scholars

Course aim

Each day will be devoted to exploring and discussing a novel, liberal contract law theory detailed in unpublished manuscripts from each teacher. The teachers will explore, with the group, their own novel, liberal theory of contract law and participants will be able to bring their own research agendas and alternative views into the discussion. Part of the day will be dedicated especially to the individual work of participants within the summer school theme: papers will be presented to and discussed with the group and the teacher.
