CREDITS 2 (LV) 3 (ECTS) - 30 Contact Hours

The course is divided into two main subjects: comparative law and contract law. They are conceptually different but will be practically intertwined for the purposes of this course. During the first part we will work on learning the comparative law method which is essential for a proper analysis of contract law in a global world (both in the academia and in the legal profession). And in the second part we will study substantive contract law not from a domestic perspective but from a comparative, and international (or global), dimension. This is a course on fundamentals. So it has a strong theoretical background. Students will be requested to read and develop a critical thinking about what they have read. But also learning materials, and some of the activities we will perform in the classroom, will be aimed at gaining some valuable practical skills.
