The Implied Term of Honesty and Fair dealing
by
Professor Hugh Collins,
Vinerean Professor of English Law, Oxford University


Chaired by
The Rt Hon Lady Justice Arden DBE

 

Thursday 10th October 2013
from 6 - 7pm 

 

 

Abstract
The subject concerns the introduction of implied obligations with respect to the performance of contracts, particularly with respect to types of contracts that are sometimes described as relational contracts (such as agency, distributorship, and employment).  In particular I plan to consider the nature of these implied obligations and their relation to the idea of good faith, whether these obligations are terms implied in fact or in law, which in turn raises questions about the category of relational contracts itself.

 

Biography of the speaker

 

Hugh Collins is Vinerean Professor of English Law at Oxford University. He studied law at Oxford and Harvard. From 1991 until 2013 he was Professor of English Law at LSE. Previously he was a Fellow of Brasenose College, Oxford University. He has also visited and taught in several American law schools including a year as a Visiting Professor at Boston University, and extended periods of research at Harvard and the University of Virginia.

Professor Collins’ research interests lie in three main fields: employment law, contract and commercial law, and legal theory.  In the field of employment law, a current particular interest concerns the application of human rights principles to the workplace and the employment relation.  In relation to contract law, the development of European Community contract law has been a particular interest in recent years.  In a combination of legal theory and commercial law, another focus of research has been in the idea of networks as a hybrid form of business organisation that is insufficiently recognised and accommodated by the law.
