AbstractThe role of the doctrine of mistake has recently been considered by the Court of Appeal and the House of Lords in England. While not completely abolishing the doctrine, the decisions of these courts have narrowed its application and focused attention on this area of contract law and the usefulness and fairness of its operation. This article reviews these cases and considers the role of the doctrine in comparison with overlapping areas of contract law. It also examines the impact on Hong Kong law and the future of the doctrine from a practical point of view and in the light of the advances made in the area of information technology.
