Subject: Contract (Scotland)
Through the OpenLaw Project BAILII seeks, with the assistance of law lecturers, to identify cases from the past and to make these freely and openly available on the internet to support legal education.

This list was created on the 17th of October 2006 and therefore may not include recent cases (BAILII does not have resources of its own with which to keep this list updated).

Suggestions for additions to this list of leading cases and/or comments on the list can be sent to openlaw@bailii.org. You will appreciate that it is not feasible to add many additional cases and that copyright restrictions may prevent the inclusion of some cases on the existing list.
