Good faith in Australian contract law after Barker

Gray, Anthony (2015) Good faith in Australian contract law after Barker. Australian Business Law Review, 43 (5). pp. 358-378. ISSN 0310-1053


This article considers recent developments in the area of good faith in Australian law, particularly given the recent High Court of Australia decision in Barker. It further considers the meaning of good faith, and whether it is confined to honesty or should include reasonableness, and whether good faith is best seen as an implied term (and if so, what kind), a principle of construction, or simply a general assumption or expectation of contracting parties.
