Lapland Law Review, Issue 2, 2015
The second issue of the Lapland Law Review Flexibility in Contracting is edited by Soili Nystén-Haarala, Thomas D. Barton and Jaakko Kujala.
Over a two-year period, Professor Nystén-Haarala periodically convened a group of lawyers and scholars from several countries in Europe, the United Kingdom, Russia, Asia, and the USA. Their collective task was to consider and study the idea of flexibility of contracts. Participants from different countries were encouraged to collaborate, so as to open up the original perspectives from
which they first approached the idea of contractual flexibility. Some undertook interview projects, some designed empirical surveys, and some approached the questions analytically rather than empirically. The work was partly funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation and led by Professor Nystén-Haarala. The chapters in this issue are the results of this collaborative research and the several workshops covering the topics.
