Networks and informal contract law

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

It is often argued that formal contract law cannot treat networks correctly. An analysis of networks in an informal contract law system shows that informal contract law is no panacea. Remaining problems require a different approach to legal regulation and contract practice.
