On 21 May, 2010, a Symposium was held on Contractual Relations and Dispute Resolution at Gillespie Centre, Clare College, the University of Cambridge. Following the late Professor Kurt Lipstein’s educational and academic passion, this event was conceived to offer a much needed arena for aspiring scholars to test their new ideas.
On the day of the symposium, each young scholar’s condensed presentation was followed by knowledgeable comments by leading practitioners and academics in the field. We are extremely grateful to the distinguished Chairpersons and Commentators for their deep insight, as well as to the sponsors for their generous financial support.
The articles in this Special Edition include revised versions of the papers that were presented at the symposium and the contributions by the inspired commentators. One young scholar, who was not able to present on the day, also contributed.
This issue represents the first of the two parts of the symposium and deals with issues in Contractual Relations. The articles concerning Dispute Resolution will appear in the Issue 1 of the Volume 23 in 2012.
