Contract Law in Russia

By Maria Yefremova, Svetlana Yakovleva, Jane Henderson

In this book, Russian contract law is explained in a form understandable to lawyers who are qualified in other countries, especially common law countries. The introduction gives a concise overview of the Russian legal system in general and contract law in particular, as well as a brief insight into the history of contract law in Russia. Then, the main concepts of Russian contract law are explained, using the conceptual framework of English contract law to make them accessible to someone not familiar with the codified Russian system. The book not only considers the legislation regulating Russian contractual relations, but also includes appropriate case law to show how the legislation is interpreted. The focus is on contract law as it actually operates, rather than merely the legislative texts. It will be directly relevant to legal practitioners and others who wish to acquire knowledge of the practical application of an important element of the Russian legal system, as well as those seeking an insight into the realities of codified law in action.
