VIAL FOURCADE, Gonzalo. The relevance of climate change to contract law. Mex. law rev [online]. 2023, vol.16, n.1, pp.3-22.  Epub 15-Ene-2024. ISSN 2448-5306.

Climate change is a problem with an extremely wide scope, both in its consequences and in the solutions required to tackle it. In this context, this article reflects on whether climate change is a matter of legal significance to the field of contract law. As a conclusion, it is argued that the phenomenon is relevant or contract law for at least three reasons, namely: that such a legal field provides tools that are useful to address the climate problem; that the climate crisis raises several legal challenges for the field, and that climate change has altered the legal landscape of contract law and will continue to do so.

Palabras llave : Climate Change; Contract Law; Relevance.
