dc.description.abstract When set against reforms elsewhere the New Zealand contract statutes were a radical reform. A former Attorney General noted that the Contract and Commericial Law Reform Committee had a 'reputation for boldness'. Some of the reforms built on English law. Others were a clear break with the past. The legislation can be criticised on some points. For example, arguably it did not get the balance right between the need to respect fairness and the secruity of contracts.
