English and European Perspectives on Contract and Commercial Law

Essays in Honour of Hugh Beale

Edited by: Louise Gullifer, Stefan Vogenauer

This book honors the influential and wide-ranging work of Professor Hugh Beale of Warwick University. The festschrift contains essays by 25 very distinguished authors, each of whom has worked with Professor Beale as a co-author and/or as a teaching colleague during his time as Law Commissioner of England and Wales, or as part of the study groups working in Europe on contract and commercial law. The essays reflect different aspects of Professor Beale's interests. Some concentrate on English contract law, either from a historical or a current perspective, while others are focused on aspects of European contract law. There are four essays looking at current issues relating to security and financing, and, as befits a former Law Commissioner, three essays on law reform. The contributions in the final section discuss trends in transnational and European commercial law. The book brings together the reflections of eminent writers from all over Europe on important issues facing contract and commercial law.
