Front Cover
Bloomsbury Publishing, Apr 18, 2019 - Law - 920 pages
This is the third edition of the casebook providing an article-by-article analysis of the CISG Convention. Offering a fully updated range of materials, this casebook is an excellent starting point for learning about the Convention and will be particularly useful for international trade lawyers, practitioners and students. The commentary on each article is accompanied by extracts from cases and associated comparative materials, as well as references to important trade usages such as the INCOTERMS® 2010. The book features an updated selection of the most significant cases, each of which has been abridged to enable the reader to focus on its essential features and the relevant questions arising from it. The case extracts are accompanied by a comprehensive overview of parallel provisions in other international instruments, uniform projects and domestic laws.

The analyses, cases, texts and questions are intended to aid readers in their comparative law and international sales law studies. They are designed to draw attention to the particular issues surrounding specific CISG provisions and to provoke careful consideration of possible solutions.

The book is a reference work as well as an introduction to the individual problem areas. In particular, it acts as a preparatory work for the Willem C Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot. Sample questions and answers are also included, which make it particularly helpful for self-study purposes.
