Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The pandemic, caused by the new coronavirus, brought with it several complications in the execution of contracts, especially in the field of private contracts, which includes contracts for the use of shop on commercial premises. It is our intention to qualify and frame the compulsory closure of shopping centers, as well as their repercussions on the fulfillment of the contractual program of this type of contracts, in one of the classic institutes of our Civil Code, capable of solving these disturbances. With this dissertation, we will also try to answer the question of whether art. 168.º-A, n.º 5 of Law n.º 27-A / 2020 has, in fact, retroactive efficacy, in what ways, and, finally, if it is admissible in our legal system.
