In this paper we examine the Law of Obligations in Ireland and Northern Ireland. Given constraints of space we focus on post-partition divergences and convergences. Rather than attempt to examine the totality of the Law of Obligations, we have focused on tort and contract, and in particular examples where divergence and convergence have been driven by case law and by statute. Thus, in tort law, our focus is on one tort based on case law, and one based in statute. Similarly in contract, we focus on three areas where changes have been driven by either statute or judicial reasoning.
