Abstract

It is startling when a leading precedent of over 50 years standing is said to be wrong. It is wven more startling when that precedent has been accepted by the courts as well as all the major textbooks as establishing and embodying one of the major doctrines in the law of contract (here, that of common mistake in equity). In the recent Court of Appeal decision of Great Peace Shipping Ltd v Tsavliris (International) Ltd, this was precisely what happened.
