The discussion will be on the role of the contract as to regulating the agreement between the parties from a Nordic perspective and as against the backdrop of Anglo-American law. We will look at the Nordic Contracts Act, the rules with respect to contract interpretation, standard agreements and the role of the courts when determining the content of the agreement. Examples of challenges posed by the difference between the Nordic and Anglo-American perspectives will be raised, particularly with respect to integration clauses and letters of intent.
