Abstract:     
This article examines some of the current controversies in the law of contract interpretation in Australia, particularly in the light of the recent decision of the NSW Court of Appeal in Jireh International Pty Ltd t/as Gloria Jean’s Coffee v Western Export Services Inc. The authors suggest, inter alia, that there is an urgent need for the High Court to issue its own restatement of the principles of contract interpretation for the guidance of lower courts.
