  1. To what extent is the principle of good faith in contract law a basis for convergence between English law and other jurisdictions?

    Historically it has been rejected for three core reasons; that the self-interest fundamental to a commercial contract is diametrically opposed to the idea of good faith, that good faith is too much of a subjective concept to be enforceable and lastly that it is not the way of the courts to develop the law with comprehensive principles, it is preferential for them to do so incrementally[4]. In practice the lack of acceptance of a principle of good faith can be seen in the case of Walford v Miles, where Lord Ackner dismissed it as ?unworkable in practice as it is inherently inconsistent with the position of a negotiating party.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • "In Civilian systems the judge is simply the mouthpiece of the law", Discuss

    "In conclusion a Judges role in theory is to simply be a mouthpiece of the law. But in reality this is not practical. Over time as civil law systems have evolved so have the roles of their judiciary. To constrict the role of the judiciary is simply not practical since it would be to the detriment of the development of the law. Often within civil codes there is not enough precision to allow a simple interpretation of the law in all cases, and when there is a lack of clarity, the judiciary need to show the correct method of interpretation, and as is the case in Germany, need to modify the Law. Over time it is likely that the role of the Judiciary will expand and elevate them from being simply a mouthpiece to being equivalent to their common law counterparts."

  • Until comparatively recently the rights of indigenous peoples have not been adequately safeguarded by international law. Discuss

    "In conclusion, it can be forcefully argued that the rights of indigenous peoples have only recently been safeguarded and that previously the only recognised protection offered was under Article 27 of the ICCPR. Indigenous peoples, when numerically inferior, are entitled to rights under minority instruments but, as already addressed, under many circumstances the needs of a minority community are different to an indigenous community. Whether the 2007 Declaration will actually prove to be adequate will only be seen in years to come, but it may be said to be a step in the right direction. However, it is important to remember that the 2007 Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is only a manifestation of soft law and as such will not bind any member State from disregarding its obligations under it and as such only time will tell if it will serve its purpose. 2,492 words including discursive footnotes."
