Unfair Contract Terms: Termination for Convenience

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This article considers the increasing use of so-called termination for convenience clauses in contracts. This typically permit one of the contracting parties to terminate the contract, without reason. This runs contrary to the general law of contract, which typically only permits a party to terminate a contract where there has been a breach of condition by the other side. The article considers the law should not generally permit the use of termination for convenience clauses. While freedom of contract is important, such a clause is not reasonably necessary for the protection of genuine commercial interests.
