Workload : Written group essay. Course Description : In the French legal system, contract law is the foundation for the comprehension of other ﬁelds of law, which often turn to its provisions to resolve complex legal issues that arise in business practice. For this reason, contract law is generally taught in the second year of studies, with the purpose of familiarizing students as soon as possible with legal terms such as “obligation”, “contract”, “liability”, which will be approached from different angles throughout their university education. The teaching of this course in English allows the students, French or foreigners, to improve their formation in contract law in the language used in international business and to deepen their knowledge in the particularities of French Contract Law through different aspects of comparative law (Common Law, EU law, legislation of other European countries). References to other national legislations, especially to the ones of Common Law countries, give students the chance to identify similarities and differences 418
