This thesis employs comparative methodology to examine the transplantability of the doctrine of proper law of contract from Australia into the Jordanian legal system, comparing the functional scope of the targeted rules in both countries. To this end, it first develops its own methodology for evaluating the legal transplant, before analysing the ability of Jordan to accommodate the proper law doctrine within its national legal system. This analysis includes a functional effectiveness of the doctrine from a Jordanian perspective; including its alignment with political and cultural values. The thesis concludes that the transplant is not only possible, but necessary.
