The role of fairness in the law of contract: The case of Beadica 231 CC and Others v Trustees for the time being of the Oregon Trust and Others (CCT109/19)

Aug 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

fairness in contracts

A recent Constitutional Court judgement has raised questions regarding the role fairness should and does play in the law of contract.

The application concerned the proper constitutional approach to the judicial enforcement of contractual terms and, in particular, the public policy grounds upon which a court may refuse to enforce these terms.

Join Professor Dale Hutchison and Associate Professor Andrew Hutchison in their discussion on:

  • What is the court’s power to decline enforcement of contracts on grounds of public policy?
  • How does this decision fit in with ubuntu and the transformation of contract law?
