Inertia And Preference In Contract Negotiation: The Psychological Power Of Default Rules And Form Terms, Russell Korobkin Nov 1998

Inertia And Preference In Contract Negotiation: The Psychological Power Of Default Rules And Form Terms, Russell Korobkin

Vanderbilt Law Review

In The Problem of Social Cost,' the foundational article of the law and economics movement, Ronald Coase suggested that when transaction costs are zero, the initial allocation of a legal entitlement is irrelevant to its eventual ownership. Assuming no transaction costs, the Coase Theorem predicts that if party A values an entitlement more than does party B, A will keep the entitlement if it is initially allocated to him, and he will buy it if it is originally allocated to B. This powerful insight depends on the behavioral assumption that an individual's valuation of entitlements does not depend on ...

Replacing Strict Liability With A Contract-Based Products Liability Regime, Richard C. Ausness Jul 1998

Replacing Strict Liability With A Contract-Based Products Liability Regime, Richard C. Ausness

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

When strict products liability first appeared on the scene some thirty-five years ago, it was heralded as a boon to consumers whose claims to compensation had hitherto been frustrated by the law of sales. Warranty law, it was said, worked fairly well in purely "commercial" transactions, but tort law did a better job in cases where ordinary consumers suffered personal injuries or property damage from defective products. To be sure, defenders of warranty law pointed out that the newly-drafted Uniform Commercial Code (the "Code" or "U.C.C.") was much more consumer friendly than the old Uniform Sales Act. Nevertheless ...

Is There A Duty To Negotiate In Good Faith?, Michael Philip Furmston Jul 1998

Is There A Duty To Negotiate In Good Faith?, Michael Philip Furmston

Research Collection Yong Pung How School Of Law

One of the most interesting questions concerning modern contract lawyers is whether, and if so when, there may be a duty on parties to a contract to negotiate in good faith? This may seem an odd question for an English lawyer to raise, granted the refusal of the House of Lords in Walford v. Miles [1992] 2 A.C. 128 to recognise even the effectiveness of an agreement to negotiate in good faith but this case has not escaped cogent criticism (Neill (1992) 108 L.Q.R. 405) and it rests on an axiom (that this is a duty which ...

Restrictions On Forum-Selection Clauses In Franchise Agreements And The Federal Arbitration Act: Is State Law Preempted?, James Zimmerman Apr 1998

Restrictions On Forum-Selection Clauses In Franchise Agreements And The Federal Arbitration Act: Is State Law Preempted?, James Zimmerman

Vanderbilt Law Review

The use of forum-selection clauses in contracts continues to increase. Emboldened by the Supreme Court's endorsement of forum- selection clauses, large companies now frequently use these clauses in a variety of contracts. Contracting parties use these clauses in part to ensure that the parties can resolve any dispute in a convenient forum. Often, however, a party inserts a forum-selection clause to limit liability by increasing the barriers to litigation or arbitration. Typically, the party inserting the forum-selection clause has superior bargaining power and inserts into the contract a clause designating a forum remote to the other party, where any ...

Questioning The "New Consensus" On Promissory Estoppel: An Empirical And Theoretical Study, Robert A. Hillman Apr 1998

Questioning The "New Consensus" On Promissory Estoppel: An Empirical And Theoretical Study, Robert A. Hillman

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

Professor Hillman presents evidence that contradicts several assumptions about how courts apply the doctrine of promissory estoppel. Although theorists have claimed the importance, even dominance, of the theory as a ground for enforcing promises, he shows that this theory is remarkably unsuccessful in the courts. Professor Hillman also demonstrates the crucial role of reliance in both successful and unsuccessful promissory estoppel cases, despite the "new consensus" that courts enforce promises without a showing of reliance. Finally, Professor Hillman shows that courts award damages flexibly in successful promissory estoppel cases, although analysts have claimed that courts strongly favor expectancy damages.

Domestic Partnership And Same-Sex Relationships: A Marketplace Innovation And A Less Than Perfect Institutional Choice, Nancy J. Knauer Jan 1998

Domestic Partnership And Same-Sex Relationships: A Marketplace Innovation And A Less Than Perfect Institutional Choice, Nancy J. Knauer

Nancy J. Knauer

The struggle for the recognition and protection of same-sex relationships is at the forefront of the contemporary gay and lesbian civil rights agenda. Whereas the push for same-sex marriage and parenting rights has met with mixed results in the courts and the legislatures, an impressive array of organizations, including Fortune 500 companies, colleges, nonprofit corporations, and municipalities, now extend benefits to the same-sex partners of their employees. This level of success raises a provocative question regarding the potential role of institutional employers in the larger on the agenda for progressive social change. Domestic partnership benefits are a creature of the ...

Debt Instruments' Tax Treatment In Corporate Mergers And Acquisitions, Tae Oon Jang Jan 1998

Debt Instruments' Tax Treatment In Corporate Mergers And Acquisitions, Tae Oon Jang

LLM Theses and Essays

The increase of merger and acquisition(M&A) activity since 1992 has resulted mainly from a domestic economic recovery. The current M&A trend shows that M&A is still an important means of enhancing many corporations' competitive power and of stimulating growth in such areas as computer software and services, wholesale and distribution, miscellaneous services, banking and finance, and leisure and entertainment. Fundraising for mezzanine-fund financing, which reflects investors' foresight about current and future M&A trends, has also seen rapid growth. After the Tax Reform Act of 1986 and the repeal of the General Utilities doctrine, the elimination ...


The Interpretation Of The Remedial Provisions Of The Cisg, Evelina Wilhelmina Innocentia Visser Jan 1998

The Interpretation Of The Remedial Provisions Of The Cisg, Evelina Wilhelmina Innocentia Visser

LLM Theses and Essays

The drafting process of the most successful international uniform law of the last decades, the 1980 United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG) reflected that in order to become a set of "well-balanced subsidiary rules," international uniform must be drafted and implemented carefully. It is essential that an international uniform law is adapted to diverse cultures. The different needs and demands of the varied socio-economic systems and legal structures, perceptions, procedures, and cultures of the distinct legal systems of this world are a main and omnipresent consideration and must be capable of absorbing the unified law. Either ...

The Cisg Convention And Thomas Franck's Theory Of Legitimacy, Anthony S. Winer Jan 1998

The Cisg Convention And Thomas Franck's Theory Of Legitimacy, Anthony S. Winer

Northwestern Journal of International Law & Business

The Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) Convention is one of the most talked-about, and written-about, aspects of international commercial law. Ss time progresses, it may become evident that significant numbers of commercial actors and significant numbers of courts and other adjudicatory bodies are simply choosing not to apply the Convention. In such event, the question as to why there should be such a reluctance to adopt the Convention will present itself. This Article finds helpful perspective on this question in the work of international legal scholar Thomas Franck. Specifically, guidance is drawn from the theory of international ...
