Have the new South African Constitution’s promises of freedom, equality and human dignity in 1994 transformed its law of contract into something fundamentally different from what it had been before? After reviewing the broad development of the South African law of contracts in the twentieth century, this Article considers the key decisions on the constitutionalisation of the law of contract and offers explanations for the development after 1994.
