In this volume Mitchell examines case law, academic debate and the resurgence of interest in formalist contract interpretation in the US to explore the meaning of contextual interpretation, arguments for and against it and suggestions on how parties may influence the interpretation methods applied to their agreement. Identifying controversial issues, arguments and analyzing possible future developments, this book addresses a range of questions, including: How far should it be possible for courts, through the process of interpretation, to control the bargain made between parties? Are judges applying the principles of interpretation in the same way? What is the relevant context of an agreement? Should contracting parties be able to opt out of a particular interpretative approach by use of mechanisms such as entire agreement clauses? Short and concise, this is a useful reference tool for those interested in contract and tort law.

This exciting new practitioner text provides a clear and comprehensive account of the legal principles and doctrines which come into play whenever the parties disagree about the meaning and effect of the contractual words. Most commercial transactions, from the supply of goods and services to the sale of a business, are reduced to writing. In most cases this entails that the deal is recorded in clear and certain terms for the parties to perform. Nevertheless written contracts are abundant with disputes about the meaning and effect of particular words and phrases. Although the common law principles and techniques of construction are of long ancestry, they have recently come to greater prominence as judges have self-consciously sought to modernize the approach to the interpretation of contractual instruments. The Construction of Contracts provides a new and refreshed account of the principles involved, focusing on the practitioner's needs, tackling modernization head on and equipping readers with the necessary means to avoid pitfalls in contractual provisions. The coverage extends to related rules and doctrines, including rectification and implication of terms, and consideration of the status of the controversial "parol evidence rule." The book also considers the nature of effect of particular species of contractual provision, including warranties and indemnities, exemption clauses, "force majeure" clauses and "entire agreement" clauses.
