Relational rights and responsibilities: Perspectives on contractual arrangements in franchising

Book overview

Author statement:
Edited by Elizabeth C. Spencer

In November 2008 the Bond University Faculty of Law and the School of Business Law and Taxation in the Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales brought together leading scholars and practitioners to address contract issues in franchising. The Colloquium investigated the nature of the franchise relationship and the role and interpretation of the franchise agreement. The papers in this volume help to unravel some of the “mystery” surrounding the true nature of the franchise bargain (both implicit and express). They provide readers with enhanced appreciation of the complexities, both practical and theoretical, of the franchise relationship through diverse analyses of, and wide-ranging perspectives on, the contractual obligations of the parties within the franchise structure.
