This review covers developments in the law of contract since the previous review which was presented in late 2015. I presented a further seminar in June 2016 on the Law of Penalties which covered recent developments in the law of penalties. This is an area which has, perhaps unexpectedly, been extensively examined by the higher courts in the United Kingdom and Australia. This review does not rehearse the ground covered by the earlier seminars but, in some of the areas covered, such as the approach to interpretation, implied terms, penalties and damages, the decisions reviewed build upon developments noted in the previous seminars. By way of example, in the recent period we have seen courts continue the emphasis in contract interpretation cases (which was highlighted in the previous seminar) on finding the meaning of the language by which contracting parties have expressed themselves in their agreement.
