Draft Execution in Counterpart (Scotland) Bill

14 Nov 2012

The SLC is currently reviewing various aspects of the law of contract, and one topic for reform which practitioners specifically mentioned during consultation earlier this year is that of formation of contract by “execution in counterpart”.  We have since come up with draft recommendations in the form of a short draft bill.  Our seminar on 29 November aims to assess the views of the profession on this matter and discuss our draft bill.  The Contract Law in Light of the DCFR team would like to make available the current version of the draft bill, an invitation to the seminar, and the relevant pending amendments to the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995.
