About our guest...

Professor Wayne Barnes teaches and writes about contract law.  His scholarly interests focus on contract law, including the implications of contract theory for ascertaining assent by consumers to standard form contracts. He has especially focused on such assent to form contracts in the online Internet context, and the implications of the online environment for the contracting process.
