Description

In this project it is asked whether there is a doctrine of inducing breach of contract in Finland de lege lata, and if not, if there should be. Inducing breach of contract can be described as a situation where a person persuades a party to a contract to break his contract and contract with the inducer instead. The question is whether the inducer is liable in tort for the other contract party´s losses. The doctrine of interference with contract has received little attention in Finnish legal literature and court practice, although it is of significant importance in many european and non-european countries (e.g. Germany, UK, USA).
