- Core Course
Contract Law is taught in two parts in the undergraduate curriculum mandated by the Bar Council of India. Contract I is a core course that forms the first part. The word ‘contract’ in general parlance is used on a routine basis without attributing much importance to its legal consequences. But in the framework of legal enquiry the word ‘contract’ and the law governing it is dynamic. Unveiling the core concepts of this dynamic discipline would be the primary aim of this course.
Being one of the first courses on statutory law administered to undergraduate law students, this course offers the scope of delving into some of the foundational legal discourses on statutory interpretation.
This course deals comprehensively with the basic principles of law of contracts, especially the Indian law on contract. Introduction to the laws of obligations and the foundational understanding of legal liability in contractual relations would be the focus of this course. This course would also endeavour to encourage reflective thinking and analytical legal reasoning skills of the students by cultivating the ability to move between the doctrinal analysis of the law and its application in practice.
