Seminar: Doron Teichman - A behavioral theory of contracts

CBS LAW will host a seminar with the title: A behavioral theory of contracts.

In recent years, behavioral findings on people's bounded rationality have greatly contributed to the understanding of contracts and contract law. The behavioral insights challenge some of the claims of standard economic analysis (and are of relevance to other normative perspectives as well).

The talk will present a behavioral theory of contracts, which emphasizes the role of factors such as promise keeping and trust, and examines how these factors are affected by the mode of contracting - individually negotiated versus standard-form contracts. Further, the talk will explore concrete areas of contract law through a behavioral prism, including pre-contractual negotiations, with special emphasis on the role of default rules and other reference points; contract information; and remedies for breach of contract, including agreed-upon remedies. Finally, the talk will review the growing impact of behavioral findings on the regulation of consumer contracts.

Doron Teichman, the speaker, is the Vice Dean and Jacob I. Berman Chair in Law at the faculty of Law, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Moreover, he is the co-author (with Prof. Eyal Zamir) of Behavioral Law and Economics (Oxford University press; 2018).

The seminar will take place 25 January 2019: 10.00-11.30 at CBS, more exactly: CBS, Augustinus Fonden: Senate meeting room SP D4, Solbjerg Plads 3, 2000 Frederiksberg, Denmark.
