The Achilleas: Forsaking Foreseeability 


Professor Victor Goldberg

Columbia University

Chaired by Lord Collins of Mapesbury


on Thursday 11 July 2013, from 6-7pm

UCL Law Faculty
Bentham House, Endsleigh Gardens
London WC1H 0EG


Accredited with 1 CPD hour by the
Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board (Pending)


About this lecture:

In The Achilleas, the House of Lords gave the most recent interpretation of Hadley v. Baxendale and the limits on the recovery of consequential damages. Lord Hoffmann rejected the emphasis on foreseeability and “the requisite degree of probability of loss,” proposing instead on the tacit assumption of the parties. This paper provides a theoretical framework for ascertaining the tacit assumption and applies it to the particular facts of The Achilleas


About the speaker: 

Professor Goldberg joined the Faculty of Law at Columbia University in 1988. Before this, he taught Law at Northwestern University and Economics at the University of California (Davis). Professor Goldberg has published numerous books and articles on law and economic issues.
