Interference with contractual relations
The purpose of this essay is, through a comparative analysis of the legal state in a number of different legal systems, namely the Common law, French law, German law, and the laws of the Nordic countries, to see how these systems differ in their approaches towards interference with contractual relations. Do the different systems find the phenomenon of interference with contractual relations a problem and, if so, in what way and which methods or techniques are used to handle the matter? The purpose is, therefore, also to examine whether different legal systems can, through different approaches, find different solutions to a problem such as interference with contractual relations, and if these solutions have the same effect regarding legal protection. Furthermore, the purpose is to study why and how come the different legal systems have chosen to deal with the matter in different ways. Is there an underlying interest which is approached with a different degree of protectionistic enthusiasm? If so, what are the consequences?
