Uniform law for the international sale of goods is now in force in each continent and used by over fifty of the world's major trading nations. the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is widely recognized as a landmark effort to harmonize laws governing international transactions. More than a decade after its initial implementation and widespread use in thousands of contracts, tribunals in jurisdictions around the world are reviewing articles of the Convention and citing them in both judicial and arbitral cases. Professor John Honnold, renowned scholar of commercial law, former Chief of the UN International Law Branch and Secretary of the UN Commission on International Trade Law, led the work of drafting and adopting the 1980 Convention on the International Sale of Goods. the previous two editions of Professor Honnold's Uniform Law for International Sales have been appreciated by their many users for his pragmatic and concrete approach to the Convention, and recognized as essential commentaries for anyone seeking to understand the jurisprudence that went into its creation and implementation. with the publication of the third edition of Uniform Law for International Sales, Professor Honnold is once again providing tribunals, practitioners, and scholars with invaluable insights into the meaning of each Article of the Convention. As in previous editions, the author offers concrete examples to illustrate practical applications of the Convention, but now he also cites the hundreds of decisions that apply to the Convention. Many of these decisions will influence the promotion of uniformity among countries that have adopted the Convention, encourage the settlement of disputes, and create a consensus for change when application of the Convention seems questionable. The UN Convention on Contracts of the International Sales of Goods has changed the way international sales contracts are drafted and any resulting disputes settled. Professor Honnold's Uniform Law for International Sales, 3rd Edition provides the necessary insight and practical analysis for all those seeking a comprehensive examination of this most important Convention.

This publication is a comprehensive commentary on the history, analysis & interpretation of the Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs). These treaties are intended to protect U.S. investment in foreign countries. Although the initial target of the BITs was to develop countries in the third world, the opening of Eastern Europe has led to BIT negotiations in that region as well. United States Investment Treaties: Policy & Practice analyzes the policies underlying the BIT program; describes how the BIT program differs from prior U.S. practice with respect to foreign investment protection; explains the intent of specific provisions in the various model negotiations texts; assesses the extent to which the negotiations of the individual signed BITs resulted in a substantive modification of provisions of the model negotiating texts & thus a departure from the intent of the drafters. This book deals with a topic of increasing interest to businesses with operations in foreign countries & to attorneys advising these companies.

Global Sales and Contract Law

Genre: Law

Although the 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is one of the most successful international conventions to date, it remains the case that those involved in the international sale of goods must refer to a multitude of laws. Indeed the CISG itself does not cover all issues relating to international sales contracts, so it must necessarily be supplemented by domestic law. Global Sales and Contract Law provides a truly comparative analysis of domestic laws in over sixty countries so as to deliver a global view of domestic and international sales law. The book reports on the real practice of sales law, taking into account present day problems. Complex questions on the obligations under a sales contract, the ways in which these are established, as well as the remedies following the breach of obligations, are all discussed. By addressing regional uniform projects, like OHADA, and comparing differences in domestic legal approach where the CISG would not apply, the work goes beyond existing commentaries which tend to focus only on the CISG. The analysis has been based on an unprecedented survey drawn from the world's top fifty companies as well as international traders, lawyers advising international traders, arbitral institutions, arbitrators, and law schools. This work encompasses all aspects of a sale of goods transaction and takes a wide view of sale by including general contract law. The book gives practitioners invaluable insight into judicial trends and possible solutions in different legal systems, whether preparing for litigation or drafting an international contract. Global Sales and Contract Law is the most comprehensive and thorough compilation of legal analysis in the field of the sale of goods and is a reliable source for any practitioner dealing in international commerce.

"... there is a lack of a clear and simple exposition of the CISG for students and practitioners. That is the role of the current book, which it fills admirably. All of the issues that have been raised in the cases and the literature are considered, but without excessive detail. This is a book that will do much to make the CISG an easily understandable text for all users, student and pracitioner alike." Preface by Professor Eric E. Bergsten

CISG vs Regional Sales Law Unification

Author: Ulrich Magnus
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter
ISBN: 9783866539662
Release Date: 2007-01-01
Genre: Law

In October 2011, the European Commission introduced its Proposal for a Regulation on a Common European Sales Law (CESL) which covers inter alia international business sales – a subject already regulated by the Convention of International Sale of Goods (CISG) which was ratified by 78 member states. How does this new Proposal fit the existing uniform sales law? How have other regions of the world managed the coexistence of global and regional sales law unification? What can Europe learn from the U.S. experience concerning the CISG and the Uniform Commercial Code? What can we learn from the African OHADA which made CISG more or less the internal law of 17 African states, what from Australia where CISG and common law exist alongside? All these questions are intensely discussed in this highly recommendable book written by renowned authors like Larry DiMatteo, Harry Flechtner, Franco Ferrari, Robert Koch, Ulrich Magnus and Bruno Zeller.

Nations in all regions of the world today share a common international sales law, The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The Convention was prepared by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and adopted by a diplomatic conference on 11 April 1980. Since then, the number of countries that have adopted the CISG account for over two-thirds of all world trade. The area of international sales law continues to grow as technology and development take us to a global economy. As such, the study of the CISG has become an integral component of this ever-growing area of international commercial law. The Review of the CISG is published once yearly and features articles written by prominent legal scholars in the field of international sale of goods from around the world. In addition to scholarly writings analyzing the various articles of the CISG, the book seeks to compile translations of recent decisions as well as commentaries of notable cases relating to the CISG. The Review of the CISG provides both a forum for legal discussion within the international legal community in the area of international sales law and as an authoritative source of reference for international scholars.
