Genre: Law

In 1980, the United Nations Convention for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) came into being as an attempt to create a uniform commercial sales law. This book, first published in 2007, compares two major restatements - the UNIDROIT Principles and the Principles of European Contract Law (PECL) - with CISG articles. This work has gathered scholars and legal practitioners from twenty countries who contribute analysis on the various issues covered in the articles of the CISG comparing them with how the issue is treated in the UNIDROIT and PECL restatements.The introductory section of the book addresses theoretical and practical issues of the appropriate interpretive methodology as mandated in CISG Article 7 and it is followed by individual analyses of the Convention's provisions.

Welche Rechtsfolgen losen die Vertragsaufhebung und die Unmoglichkeit der Ruckgabe der empfangenen Leistung im UN-Kaufrecht aus? Michael Sonnentag trifft die Abgrenzung der Verantwortungsbereiche des Verkaufers und des Kaufers fur die Unmoglichkeit der Ruckgabe der Ware in unversehrtem Zustand aufgrund einer Interessenabwagung. Massgebende Kriterien fur diese Abwagung sind die Verantwortlichkeit fur die Vertragsaufhebung, das Interesse des Kaufers am Gebrauch der Ware, die Sachherrschaft uber die Ware sowie das Interesse des Ruckgewahrglaubigers am Ruckerhalt der erbrachten Leistung in unversehrtem Zustand in Natur oder zumindest dem Werte nach sind essentiell. Michael Sonnentag beschrankt sich nicht auf die Klarung der Probleme im geltenden Recht, sondern unterbreitet auch Vorschlage zur Losung dieser Fragen in einem kunftigen europaischen Vertragsrecht.

Das R cktrittsrecht des K ufers im Europ ischen Privatrecht

Author: Juan Carlos Dastis
Publisher: Nomos
ISBN: 9783845284156
Release Date: 2017-05-29
Genre: Law

Die europäische Privatrechtsvereinheitlichung ist eine der bedeutendsten juristischen Entwicklungen der Gegenwart. Das Kaufrecht und die Rechtsbehelfe bei Vertragsstörungen, darunter auch das Rücktrittsrecht, sind seit jeher Teil dieser Entwicklung. Der Autor untersucht das Rücktrittsrecht in historisch-vergleichender Perspektive. Der Schwerpunkt der Arbeit liegt auf der vergleichenden Untersuchung des Rücktrittsrechts in den Rechtsordnungen Englands, Deutschlands und Frankreichs. Dabei wird der rasante Wandel nachvollzogen, dem diese Rechtsordnungen unterworfen waren, etwa in Frankreich durch die Reform des Code civil im Jahr 2016. Untersucht werden auch die Modellregelungen CISG, PECL, PICC, DCFR und das im Jahr 2011 erschienene CESL. Auf diesem Weg leistet die Arbeit einen Beitrag zu einer „organischen" Harmonisierung des Europäischen Privatrechts. Die Erkenntnisse sind für jeden, der Rechtswissenschaft (auch) europäisch denkt, unerlässlich.

Leistungshindernisse

ISBN: 3161548736
Release Date: 2017-06-12
Genre: Law

In der Regel gibt es einen sachlichen Grund dafur, dass ein Schuldner die ihm obliegende Leistung verweigert: ein Hindernis, das der Leistung entgegensteht. Je nachdem, ob dieses Hindernis uberwindbar ist oder nicht, muss das Recht unterschiedliche Wertungsfragen beantworten: Bei unuberwindbaren Hindernissen stellt sich nur die Frage, unter welchen Voraussetzungen der Schuldner zum Schadensersatz verpflichtet sein soll; bei uberwindbaren Hindernissen muss zudem geregelt werden, welche Anstrengungen der Schuldner auf sich nehmen muss, um das Hindernis zu uberwinden und in natura zu leisten. Ivo Bach untersucht, welche Antworten das BGB auf diese Frage gibt und welche Antworten im Vergleich dazu der Vorschlag fur ein Gemeinsames Europaisches Kaufrecht vorsieht. Anschliessend widmet er sich einzelnen Erscheinungsformen von Leistungshindernissen und ihren jeweiligen Besonderheiten: glaubigerverursachte Hindernisse, Zweckstorungen, partiell wirkende Hindernisse, Hindernisse bei vertretbaren Sachen, zeitlich beschrankte Hindernisse sowie den Zeitablauf als Hindernis.

Die Haftung f r culpa in contrahendo in Polen und in Deutschland

Author: Malgorzata Wojtas
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
ISBN: 3161551745
Release Date: 2017-07-12
Genre: Law

Die Haftung fur culpa in contrahendo beschreibt die Verantwortlichkeit der Verhandlungsparteien fur ihr Fehlverhalten in der vorvertraglichen Phase. Was stellt ein vorvertragliches Fehlverhalten dar und welche haftungsrechtliche Konsequenzen lost es aus? Trotz fortschreitender Harmonisierung des europaischen Vertragsrechts ist dies bis heute im polnischen und deutschen Rechtssystem unterschiedlich geregelt. Malgorzata Wojtas arbeitet zunachst eine europarechtliche Definition der culpa in contrahendo heraus, welche anschliessend als Grundlage fur einen Rechtsvergleich der deutschen und polnischen Gestaltung der vorvertraglichen Haftung verwendet wird. Danach arbeitet sie einheitliche Grundsatze der vorvertraglichen Haftung im polnischen Recht heraus. Abschliessend untersucht sie verschiedene Losungen der rechtlichen Gestaltung von grenzuberschreitenden Rechtsgeschaften auf Grundlage des europaischen und internationalen Privatrechts, mit welchen sich die aus den festgestellten national-rechtlichen Differenzen resultierenden Nachteile vermeiden lassen.

The CISG and its Impact on National Legal Systems

Release Date: 2008-01-01
Genre: Law

In force in 70 countries around the world and covering more than two thirds of world trade, the 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is considered to be the most successful convention promoting international trade. According to many commentators, this success is due, among others, to the fact that the Convention does not directly impact on the domestic law of the various legal systems, as it applies only to international - as opposed to purely domestic - contracts. The Convention, in other words, does not impose changes in the domestic law, which makes it easier for States to adopt the Convention. This does not mean, however, that the Convention does not have any impact on the domestic law at all. This book analyzes - through 24 country reports as well as a general report submitted to the 1st Intermediate Congress of the International Academy of Comparative Law held in November 2008 in Mexico City - to what extent the Convention de facto influences domestic legal systems. In particular, the book examines the Convention's impact on the practice of law, the style of court decisions as well as the domestic legislation in the area of contract law.

The contributors explore a variety of topical subjects, including judicial approaches to 'top-down' and 'bottom-up' methods; teaching trusts law; the protection of privacy in private law; the development of the law of unjust enrichment; the private law consequences of theft; equity's jurisdiction to relieve against forfeiture; the nature of fiduciary relationships and obligations; the duties of trustees; compensation and disgorgement remedies; partial rescission; the role of unconscionability in proprietary estoppel; and the nature of registered title to land.

Law of International Contracting

ISBN: 9789041124418
Release Date: 2009
Genre: Law

Now also available as eBook. For more than a decade this prized guide has served practitioners handling the legal ramifications of international contracting projects. The Third Edition thoroughly describes the new and ever-changing concepts and procedures that continue to redefine the searching, drafting, and execution of international contracts. More profoundly, it takes fully into account the impact of the financial crisis of 2008 on the legal profession, the regulatory system, and how we view certain types of contractual instruments. All the invaluable features of earlier editions are of course still here, including analysis of key contract issues unique to various types of contracting, common contract clauses (such as choice of law and dispute resolution clauses), contract checklists, insights gleaned from actual cases and arbitral proceedings, and clear explanation of the principles of good contract drafting. The major relevant international conventions, model laws, pertinent national laws, legal guides, and other documents and instruments are all covered, with primary texts provided in appendices. The bibliography (including online sources) is once more greatly expanded and enhanced. The Third Edition introduces the idea of proactive or strategic contracting, and adds a new chapter on confidentiality, nondisclosure agreements, and covenants not to compete. Other new and updated material examines such issues and topics as the following: anti-bribery clauses; "garden leave" clauses; strategic posturing; countertrade; guarantees of performance; mediation rules; performance bonds; and contract interpretation. Updates on relevant developments worldwide include new material on China, the European Union (including the important Common European Sales Law), Germany, Scandinavia, Russia, and Australia. The important new United Nations Convention on the Use of Electronic Communications in International Contracts is also covered. Given the legal liability that can result from the failure to take private international law developments into account, this book is not only valuable but necessary. As an adroit combination of up-to-date theoretical underpinning and eminently practical guidance, the book will continue to serve practitioners well in this latest edition.
