Since Yam Seng there has been a lively debate about whether and when there is to be implied into certain relational contracts an implied duty of good faith.
This lecture considers the application and content of such a duty:
- From Yam Seng to Bristol Rovers: Trying to make sense of the recent cases.
- What can we learn from other relationships in which judges and Parliament have established such a duty?
- The influence of Arnold v Briton on the development of such a duty.
- Conclusions about the duty and how to argue for and against it.
The seminar will be followed by drinks and canapés at Hardwicke and the chance (if you wish) to watch the UEFA Euro 2016 Quarter Finals.
