Contract Law in Timor-Leste


Timor-Leste has much to be proud of in the wake of highly successful, fully democratic presidential and parliamentary elections earlier this year. Over the last decade, there has been significant progress in building a legal system and broader state committed to the values in the Constitution, but the state building process requires ongoing effort. This volume focuses on one such area, the creation and enforcement of contracts. The topic is now vitally important to Timor-Leste, and will become even more so in the years to come. Contracts are also a foundational topic in legal education in both civil and common law countries.
