Professor Trakman characterizes contract and commercial law scholarship in Canada as a young discipline, which has so far focused on descriptive analysis rather than prescriptive synthesis. As the area matures, preoccupations will move naturally to include prescription as well as description, scholars will come to recognize the integration of contract and commercial law with outside values; and the scholarship will accept its potential role in necessary substantive and procedural law reform.
