EVENT: UCL – The Achilleas: Forsaking Foreseeability

Posted July 11th, 2013 in Forthcoming events by sally

“In The Achilleas, the House of Lords gave the most recent interpretation of Hadley v. Baxendale and the limits on the recovery of consequential damages. Lord Hoffmann rejected the emphasis on foreseeability and “the requisite degree of probability of loss,” proposing instead on the tacit assumption of the parties. This paper provides a theoretical framework for ascertaining the tacit assumption and applies it to the particular facts of The Achilleas. ”
