Interpretation of Contracts
Författare: Professor Ola Svensson
An important topic in contract law is how contracts and other legal documents should be interpreted. Since the Swedish Contracts Act contains no provisions for contractual interpretation, rules and principles in this area have extensively been developed in case law, which means that the provisions can be considered as a judge-made law. The purpose of this presentation is to describe the Swedish provisions of contract interpretation. The petition includes a statement of party-oriented interpretation, objective-oriented interpretation, complementary rules of interpretation and supplementation.
