The course on contract law is divided into two parts. This course is the first part of the journey into contract law. The word ‘contract’ in general parlance is used on a routine basis without attributing emphasis to the legal consequences. This course provides an opportunity to research and participate in the creative journey of contracts. This is the first course where a statute is relied upon to lay the foundation for law discourse. Reliance is to develop an understanding of its design and framework that shall approach in a structured and comprehensive manner.

This course deals comprehensively with the basic principles of contract law, particularly Indian Contract Law. This course is an introduction to the laws of obligations with the foundation of legal liability in the contract, which shall be the focus area of this course.

Further, the law of contracts is not just about contracts but is an introduction to legal reasoning and methods. Developing this skill shall be one of the prime focuses of this course. Contract Law I is a core course mandated by Bar Council and UGC and is a foundational course.
