Abstract

Neither France nor England has an ideal solution to the challenges posed by COVID-19 for contractual performance. Messy and limited state intervention or narrowly construed doctrines may not address the needs of contracting parties.

Keywords: COVID-19, contractual performance, supervening events, comparative law, state intervention in contract law
