This new edition of An International Restatement of Contract Law is the first comprehensive introduction to the Unidroit Principles 2004. In addition, it provides an extensive survey and analysis of the actual use of the Unidroit Principles in practice with special emphasis on the different ways in which they have been interpreted and applied by the courts and arbitral tribunals in the hundred or so cases reported worldwide.

Description : Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject Law - Comparative Legal Systems, Comparative Law, grade: 75% (=With Distinction), Cardiff University (Grossbritannien; Law School), course: Comparative Contract Law, language: English, abstract: The question as to whether a third party can be granted rights or protection based on a contract between two other parties to which the third party is a mere stranger is as old as the legal scholarship of contract law itself. Over centuries, quite different approaches to the issue have been evolved and embedded in different legal systems, each with its own characteristics and features. This essay intents primarily to analyse and compare the approaches of English1 and German Law to third party rights arising from bilateral contracts, particularly with regard to contracts for the benefit of a third party and the new Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999. However, despite this main focus, some other features related to third party involvement in mutual contracts will be considered too. In the first and the second part of this essay I will describe the modus operandi of English and German law with regard to third party rights and highlight differences and similarities. The third part of this paper concerns the approach of that what is sometimes called an international restatement of contract law, namely the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts,2 to the rights of third parties. A comparison of the English and German system with the restatement will illustrate to what extent elements of these two national legal systems have been implemented and considered in an international project of unification of law

Description : Since fall 2006: a new, revised edition of Unidroit Principles in Practice, featuring approximately 120-130 cases. The UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contacts, published in 1994, were an entirely new approach to international contract law. Prepared by a group of eminent experts from around the world as a “restatement” of international commercial contract law, the Principles are not a binding instrument but are referred to in many legal matters. They are widely recognized now as a balanced set of rules designed for use throughout the world irrespective of the legal traditions and the economic and political conditions of the countries in which they are applied.

Description : The UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts, published in 1994 after years of intensive study by a special Working Group composed of representatives of all the major legal systems of the world, already encounter an extraordinary success in practice. In this volume twenty-one leading experts from all over the world examine the UNIDROIT Principles from the perspective of their respective countries, focusing, among others, on the similarities and differences between the UNIDROIT Principles and domestic law, and the use of the UNIDROIT Principles in actual practice (contract negotiation, arbitration proceedings, model for law reform projects, etc.). These national reports are critically analysed in the General Report by Professor M.J. Bonell, Chairman of the Working Group for the preparation of the UNIDROIT Principles.

Description : Essay from the year 2003 in the subject Law - Comparative Legal Systems, Comparative Law, grade: 67%, Cardiff University (Grossbritannien; Law School), course: Comparative Contract Law, language: English, abstract: The UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts1 have been published in May 1994 by the Rome-based International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT), an intergovernmental organisation established in 1926. The Working Group on the UNIDROIT Principles was found in 1980 and consisted of independent legal scholars of all major legal systems of the world. The UNIDROIT Principles are not binding law. Most legal writers agree that they can be characterised as a restatement of the law of international commercial contracts2 and despite the controversial issue about the very existence, scope and content of a lex mercatoria - the possibility of applying supranational law to international legal relationships- most authors agree that it exists and that the UNIDROIT Principles are a significant part of it3. The object of this paper is to examine the UNIDROIT Principles' approach to hardship laid down in Chapter 6, Section 2 and to compare it with its equivalent provision in the German Civil Code (Burgerliches Gesetzbuch, hereinafter BGB), 3134. For this purpose it is firstly necessary to define the term "hardship." Thereafter I will consider the respective provisions in detail and highlight differences and similarities."

Description : Suitable for use in combination with any law school contract text or casebook, the 2007 Edition of Selections for Contracts: Statutes, Restatement Second, Forms compiles the major statutes, forms, and other materials affecting contract law. The supplement provides Uniform Commercial Code Articles 1 and 2; the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act; the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act; Restatement of the Law, Second, of Contracts; the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods; the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts; and selected forms. Highlights of the 2007 Edition include: The presentation of Article 1 of the Uniform Commercial Code has been reorganized inasmuch as more than half of the states have now enacted revised Article 1. Both versions of Article 1 are presented. In each case, though, the presentation is abridged by the elision of provisions not relevant to contract law under the Uniform Commercial Code. As in previous editions, both the current version of Article 2 and the proposed amendments promulgated in 2003 are included. The presentation of the proposed amendments has been clarified by indicating proposed changes from current law by underlines and strikeouts. In addition, recent technical amendments to the text of the proposed amendments have been incorporated. Of course, in light of the failure (to date) of states to enact the proposed amendments, the main educational role served by their inclusion in the materials is to enable ?compare and contrast? discussions rather than to exemplify the current state of the law. Materials on electronic commerce (the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act and the federal ESIGN Act) have been added. The presentation of the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts has been updated to reflect the current version. New section on Selected Contracts and Agreements providing actual contracts from well-known cases, such as Wood v. Lucy, Peevyhouse v. Garland Coal Mining Co., Dalton v. ETS, and Bloor v.

Description : Through further technological development and increased globalization, conducting busines abroad has become easier, especially for Small and Medium Enterprises (SME). However, the legal issues associated with international commerce have not lessened in complexity, including the role of non-state rules. The book provides a comprehensive analysis of non-state rules in international commercial contracts. Non-state rules have legal authority in the national and international sphere, but the key question is how this legal authority can be understood and established. To answer this question this book examines first what non-state rules are and how their legal authority can be measured, it then analyses how non-state rules are applied in different scenarios, including as the applicable law, as a source of law, or to interpret either the law or the contract. Throughout this analysis three other important questions are also answered: when can non-state rules be applied? when are they applied? and how are they applied? The book concludes with a framework and classification that leads to a deeper understanding of the legal authority of non-state rules. Providing a transnational perspective on this important topic, this book will appeal to anyone researching international commercial law. It will also be a valuable resource for arbitrators and anyone working in international commercial litigation.

Description : International commercial contracts in the context of increasing globalization of the national markets have posed some of the most difficult questions of the legal theory as developed since the emergence of nation states; those are, whether it is possible or desirable to allow international commercial contracts to be governed by the law merchant or, in its medieval name, lex mercatoria, a body of rules which has not been derived from the will of sovereign states, but mainly from transnational trade usages and practices, and to what extent those rules should govern transnational transactions. The traditional approach of legal positivism to the questions maintains that law governing contracts containing a foreign element should be a national law which will be determined according to choice of law rules. However, the particularities of cross border trade yield unsatisfactory results when the rules essentially designed for the settlement of domestic disputes or national laws pertaining to international economic relations, but developed under the influence of a certain legal tradition, are tried to be applied. New solutions are needed to overcome the special problems of international trade between merchants from different legal systems. In that regard, while the international commercial arbitration which has been freed from the constraints of the domestic laws is an important step, the courts generally applying the principle of party autonomy which allows parties to designate the law that will apply to their transactions have proved insufficient due to the positivistic influence on the conflict of laws rules of most countries which has limited parties' choice of law to the national substantive laws. The problems created by those inconsistencies and divergences have been felt more strongly in the European Community which constitutes an internal market by integrating the national markets of Member States into a single one. The present paper is an attempt to search for answers to those questions with a special emphasis on the situation in the European Community on the basis of the idea that law as a servant of social need must take account of the far reaching and dramatic socio-economic changes.

Description : The survey compares the rules on contractual non-performance and remedies under the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts, the Principles of European Contract Law, and Indian statutory contract law (including the Indian Contract Act, 1872). Given that most Indian statutes were derived from English law and may therefore be viewed as «codified common law», this comparison may contribute to the question of whether, especially in view of contract law harmonisation in the EU, the civil-law and common-law traditions could be merged in a common code. Moreover, it may help identify legal differences that are relevant to doing business between India and Europe. The general conclusion of the survey is that the Principles and Indian statutory contract law share a close proximity especially because many of their provisions on non-performance and remedies appear to be derived from the same concepts and also provide for very similar consequences.

Description : This is a new type of book. It provides an index of the most useful and important academic and other writings on contract law, whether published in articles or journal chapters, or as books. These writings, with their full citation, are gathered under familiar contract law subject-headings, and the most significant half of them are digested in a summary of a few lines each. The book aims to cover all writings published in the English language about the Common Law of contracts, and includes sections on contract theory and the history of contract law, as well as sections for the more traditional substantive topics (such as the interpretation of contracts, penalty clauses, remoteness of damage and anticipatory breach). This work should prove an invaluable resource for practitioners, academics and students, increasing awareness of important writings, and saving readers time by familiarising them with the work that has already been done in their particular fields.

Description : Following the publication of the Principles of European Insurance Contract Law (PEICL) in 2009, there has been significant political and academic discussion on their possible use as an optional instrument. Experts' views on this topic were exchanged at a conference held in Vienna in January 2010. The distinguished speakers represented European politics, legal science, insurance industry, insurance intermediaries and consumers. These independent experts, who were not involved in drafting the PEICL, presented their critical, unbiased opinions on the project. This volume presents the proceedings of the Vienna conference. It also includes a postscript in commemoration of the late Professor Dr. Fritz Reichert-Facilides, whose visionary ideas led to the creation of the Project Group "Restatement of European Insurance Contract Law" and to the drafting of the PEICL.
