The Legal Nature of Liability for Breach of Assurances on Circumstances
Corporate Lawyer
(Master’s programme)
2018
This master’s thesis is devoted to the legal nature of the liability for providing false assurances on circumstances under Article 431.2 of the Civil Code.

The liability for providing false assurances on circumstances has been implemented during the recent reformation of the Russian law of obligations. However, the simultaneous implementation of legal approaches developed in different legal systems has resulted in collisions between various provisions of the Civil Code. As a result, it remains unclear whether the liability for providing false assurances on circumstances is to be governed by the law of tort or by the law of contract. This theoretical uncertainty leads to a number of practical issues.

Therefore, in this thesis, an attempt was made to determine, on the theoretical level, the legal nature of the liability for providing false assurances on circumstances.
