This chapter considers good faith in the Principles of European Contract Law (PECL). It explains that Article 1:201 of PECL declares that each party must act in accordance with good faith and fair dealing, and that this duty may not be excluded or limited by the parties. The chapter argues that the contract laws of the world's uncodified mixed legal systems – in which Common Law and Civil Law sources, rules, concepts and methods have interacted for long periods – often show striking parallels with the results of PECL.
