The paradoxes of the theory of imprévision in the new French law of contract: a judicial deterrent?

  • Catherine Pédamon

Abstract

Catherine Pédamon (Westminster Law School, University of Westminster) re-examines the theory and practice of hardship, frustration and impracticality in commercial contracts, in light of the new legal provision (Art 1195 CC) of the rewritten Civil code (CC) that now enshrines the theory of imprévision (unforeseeability) in French law.
