International commercial law

By | 17 April 2009

This being (another) area of law in which (to put it mildly) I have  a lot to learn, (see previous blog entry) was always bound to lead me to/remind me of other useful resources.

One  is the CISG Database from the Institute of International Commercial Law,  Pace Law School. Database Directory

The translation service can be a particular boon. For example, there are currently some 290 translations  of CIETAC arbitration awards, while if you go to the English webpages of the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission and click the link for either Awards, Commentary or Case Analysis Report the message is just “The web page is building.”

Another part of CISG which promises to become a powerful resouce is Corterier’s Commentary on the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods .  This is the blurb from its homepage: “Here, academics and practicioners alike aim to provide a well-researched, easily accessible commentary. The commentary strives to pay particular attention to the wealth of information on the CISG already available online. It puts these resources at your fingertips by linking directly to the more important works to be found “out there”. This is a work in progress. Some of the articles have already been treated in some depth (and will be updated regularly), the rest are coming. Should you have questions, comments or would like to participate, please contact the editor.”
