So sue me

The informative Legal Post blog from the (Canadian) Financial Post notes the suggestion that co-workers involved in an, um, consensual social relationship, should sign a contract, as reported in the (US) ABA Journal. To confirm that they “independently and collectively, desire to undertake and pursue a mutually consensual social and/or amorous relationship.” Lots of fun questions about enforceability, duress, bargaining power, immoral purposes – but only in America, you might say? Well, the BBC Law in Action radio show highlights the apparent growth in students taking out legal services insurance, to be used should they run into difficulty with their university and wish to initiate legal proceedings against it. (For more on law and the British student, see this previous post).
