Restatement of Nordic Contract Law

Restatement of Nordic Contract Law is a presentation of the fundamental rules and principles of Nordic Contract law, comprising the contract laws of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. While the Nordic countries do not have a common body of contract law, rules are quite similar. Many contract law rules are undisputed but unwritten, and the authors of this book have formulated black letter rules. Each black letter rule is accompanied by comments. The comments are thorough in explaining the background of the rules, their application and consequences, often citing court cases and giving examples.

The book is divided into ten chapters: General Principles, Formation of Contract, Representation, Invalidity, Interpretation, Contract Content, Performance, Breach and Remedies, Direct Claims and Assignment of Claims.

The book is a practical tool in law practice, as it provides non-Nordic lawyers with an overview of contract law in the Nordic countries.

The authors are law school professors at universities in the Nordic countries, all specializing in contract law. The editorial board is presided by Professor Ole Lando, head of the commission of Principles of European Contract Law (the ”Lando commission”, PECL).

The Nordic Contracts Act

Essays in Celebration of its One Hundreth Anniversary
af Torgny Håstad (red.)

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.
