Abstract

It has become generally accepted that the law of Scotland that, in cases arising from breach of contract, the two-fold test established in English decision in Hadley v. Baxendale is applicable. While the English courts have tended of late to conflate the two-fold test into a single text, MacQueen argues that this is not necessarily the approach of the Scottish courts.
