The course covers general questions of contract law and specific contracts. The general questions are concerned with how a binding contract is entered into and the content of the contract. This part of the course covers formation of contract, agency, invalid contracts, and interpretation of contracts. The other part of the course covers some important specific contracts, such as sales, building contracts, leasing and different kinds of services.

• Identify legal problems and find the applicable legal rules within the subject of contract law.
