Analysis of Contract Law in Iran

Mehdi Pirhaji, Rasul Mazaheri Kuhanestani, Mohammad Reza Eskandari Pudeh


Iran literally means the land of Aryans. After accepting Islam, it has used Islamic Law as a basic regulation for living. In 1928, the Iranian legal system was approached the Western and Roman-Germanic legal system formally, though in the content it was coordinated with the Islamic Law. There is no separate unit under the title of contract law in the Iranian Civil Code but most of the legal Articles related to the law of contract are predicted in contracts and obligations from the Article 183 onward. The research problem is the ambiguities that arise from the impacts of the two systems, namely the Islamic law and the Roman-Germanic law, on the Iranian contract law. This study aims at resolving such ambiguities and reaching a better understanding of Contract Law in Iran. This is an analytical research in nature.
