Abstract

With the rules of conduct of the MiFID being implemented in the national legal systems of the Member States, the question about the relationship between public law and private law is becoming ever more important. This contribution deals with the resulting interplay between market supervision and contract law and explores different possible ways to look at it. It turns out that this interaction cannot fully be grasped by the traditional information model of European consumer law and it is not limited to simple coexistence either. Instead, radiating effects of one field of law on the other have to be specified on an individual basis, so that the market-building force of the private law contract can come to the fore.
