Title: Towards a Normative Basis of the Doctrine of Consideration
Authors: Xie, Zhuoyan
Advisor: Benson, Peter
Department: Law
Keywords: consideration legal formalism normative basis
Issue Date: 31-Dec-2010
Abstract: This paper reviews both the law and the theoretical accounts of the doctrine of consideration with a view to look for a normative, consistent and public basis of it. The thesis argues that such a basis can only be found by justifying it as what it is instead of considering it as a proxy for something else. The most promising justificatory account of the doctrine should look at its main features and try to make sense of them in consistency, instead of putting up assumption before analysis.
