The Effect of Exclusion Clauses
AbstractThe extent to which parties to a contract are free to arrange the existence and scope of their respective liabilities by the use of exemption clauses under a contract is a concern touching an unclear area of the law. Professor Fridman, recently appointed to the Faculty of Law of The University of Alberta and commencing tenure in the 1969-70 academic year, surveys the case law and concludes that proper judicial control of the freedom of contract is essential to the protection and future usefulness of that freedom.
