Contracts of Adhesion Introduction Standard form contracts offered on a take-it-or-leave-it basis by a party with considerable bargaining power present another facet of the assent problem. Assuming that the weaker party needs the goods or services in question and is unable to shop around for better terms or is unfamiliar with the terms offered, there is a genuine danger of overreaching. Karl Llewellyn, who thought deeply about this situation, suggests an ingenious answer to the assent problem. He first points out that most adhesion contracts contain certain terms that are subject to dicker as well as boiler-plate clauses that the author of the contract typically has put into every form and is unwilling to bargain over.
