Final Report of a Comparative Study of the Law Relating to Remoteness of Loss in Argentina and England and Wales with Particular Reference to Recent Proposed Reforms in Argentina

09 October 2013 | 14:30h | Seminar
Board Room, Second Floor, Liberty Building


  • Professor Roger Halson, University of Leeds
  • Professor Diego Bunge, University of Buenos Aries
  • Professor David Campbell, University of Lancaster
  • Dr Pablo Ianello, ESEADE, Argentina

The presentation marks the culmination of a research project funded by the British Academy with Professor Roger Halson as the principal investigator at the Leeds end.

The project involved  a comparison between the rules of remoteness applicable to claims for breach of contract in England and Argentina. It was timely because of a provision in the new proposed Civil Code in Argentina the effect of which would be to assimilate the principles of remoteness in contract and tort.

The co-applicant was Professor Diego Bunge, from the University of Buenos Aries supported by David Campbell, now of Lancaster University and Dr Pablo Ianello of ESEADE, Buenos Airies. An interim paper was delivered earlier in the year in Argentina and the final report will be presented in Leeds on Wednesday 9 October.
