About the book

The Nordic Contracts Act is a product of the intense legislative co-operation in the private law area between Denmark, Norway and Sweden in the first two decades of the 20th century. The Act was promulgated in Sweden in 1915, in Denmark in 1917 and in Norway in 1918. After their independence Finland followed suit in 1929 and Iceland in 1936. The Nordic Contracts Act is essentially identical in all five countries and on the whole still in force in its original form. 

The essays include an overview of Nordic contract law, pre-contractual liability, agency, passivity, construction of contractual terms, changed circumstances, unfair contract terms and protection of weaker parties, contractual duty of loyalty (good faith and fair dealing), privity of contract and direct claims, a comparison between the Nordic Contracts Act and CISG, and DCFR in the Swedish Supreme Court.
