Zhong Xing Tan, ‘Disrupting doctrine? Revisiting the doctrinal impact of relational contract theory’

ABSTrACT
While the concept of the ‘relational contract’ has been invoked in the courts with greater visibility and regularity in recent years, the doctrinal import of relational contract theory remains for the most part unclear to contract and commercial lawyers. This paper offers a broad framework for understanding the different ways through which relational theory might have an impact on contract doctrine going forward, and evaluates the promises and perils of doing so.
