On January 16 Professor Tettenborn delivered the first of the 2014 Current Legal Problems lecture series in the Faculty of Laws at University College London.
This long-established series of sponsored public lectures is recognised as a major reference point for legal scholarship; in addition it forms the basis of the annual volume entitled "Current Legal Problems".
Professor Tettenborn speaking at a Conference
The lecture, chaired by Lord Justice Longmore and introduced by Prof Robert Chambers, was very well-attended and gave an opportunity to Professor Tettenborn to make the case for an English Contract Code . He argued cogently that contract should be codified, and that - contrary to many contemporary commentators -- a codification from a purely English perspective might well make better sense that a European-inspired one. The lecture ended - like all Current Legal Problems lectures -- with lively debate and an equally lively reception. Those who attended left the lecture on a foul London evening feeling at least intellectually stimulated.
