June saw the start of our long awaited conference series featuring comparative contract law in the common law world co-organised with Jindal Global Law School, Professor Manasi Kumar. Conference 1 was held on 7th and 8th June dealing with the formation of the agreement in different common law jurisdictions. Professor Mindy Chen-Wishart of Oxford University gave the keynote speech which sparked an inspired debate of good faith in the common law. Each of the three conferences is organised in four discussion panels pairing the authors of the papers to be published in a special issue of the Liverpool Law Review with other subject experts in the field. In Conference 1, Professor Paula Giliker of Bristol Law School presented her paper on good faith in contractual negotiations. Professor Mitja Kovac presented his paper on “the rise of the mailbox rule”. On day 2 we heard about the role of minors in contracting by Professors Shaun Star, Divyangana Dhankar and Shivangi Gangwar of Jindal GLS. Our distinguished discussants included Professor Hector McQueen of Edinburgh Law School, Professor Nigam Nuggehali of BML Munjal University School of Law, Dr. May Fong Cheong of Thomas Moore Law School, ACU and Indian legal consultant and senior law teacher Dr. Nilima Badbhade. The series is still on sale from Eventbrite and our website where some materials such as presentation slides, full programme and speakers information can be found, too.
