Abstract

There are two aspects to the common law doctrine of privity of contract. The first, that a contract cannot impose liabilities on a third party, is not very controversial. The second, that in general a contract can only confer rights on parties to the contract even if it is clearly the intention of the contracting parties to benefit a third party, is highly controversial, and has been the subject of much judicial criticism.
