While, in principle, I approve of the idea of inventing your own assignment topics, I am presently at a loss. I need to find something I care enough about relating to contract law that I can write 2,000 words on. It is not a lot of words, I know.

But I fear it is about 1,963 words more than I can commit to on the topic.

We did have a short and interesting history of the Adventures of Equity this afternoon. I found it difficult to reconcile my lecturer's enthusiasm for Courts of Equity (especially the belated NSW model) with my knowledge of Jarndyce v Jarndyce.

Contract law is interesting because it is paradoxical: it is all about enforcing voluntary agreements. If agreements were really voluntary, there would be no need to enforce them and no contract law. Contract law therefore depends on disagreement for its very existence. How can you not love it?
