Abstract

The transplantation of law from different legal systems shapes the Ethiopian Civil Code to acquire hybrid rules that are originated from apparently contradicting theories. This Article critically examines the rules of contract interpretation, particularly incorporated into the Ethiopian Civil Code, in light of the French subjectivist theory and the common law objectivist theory of contracts.

Keywords: contract interpretation; objective theory; subjective theory; Civil Code; Ethiopia
