Today, international sales contracts are frequently governed by the 1980 UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The CISG is in force in more than 60 states all over world â?? both industrial nations and developing countries. It has been widely applied in international commercial transactions in the past twenty years. More than 1,700 decisions by state courts and arbitral tribunals have been reported so far. In short, the CISG has been one of the success stories in the field of the international unification of private law. The authors introduce the reader to the mechanics of that highly successful Convention by describing and analyzing the areas that the Convention covers, in particular its scope of application, the rules on the formation of contract, and the actual sales provisions. The book is primarily aimed at students, academics, and practitioners who have not yet studied the Convention in detail. From a comparative perspective, the book will be of particular interest as it combines a civil law view and a common law view on the CISG.

Also sometimes referred to as the Vienna Sales Convention, the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) regulates the rights of buyers and sellers in international sales. The Convention, which first entered into effect in 1988, is the first sales law treaty to win acceptance on a worldwide scale. The current list of Contracting States includes 11 of the G-12 Group, as well as China and Russia. CISG Contracting States account for more than two-thirds of all world trade. The importance of the CISG in the international arena is underlined by thousands of reported decisions where the CISG has been held to apply, thus evidencing the conduct of countless international traders who - by default or by express choice - regularly subject their sales contracts to the Convention. The CISG has also impacted on sales legislation at national and regional (e.g. EU) levels. The CISG treaty demands an international interpretation, and this fully updated Fourth (Worldwide) Edition draws upon the full range of secondary Convention sources, including worldwide case law and scholarly opinion. Concrete examples are provided throughout. With this book as their guide, lawyers and students who need to understand international sales contracts and sales contract disputes will confidently navigate topic areas such as the following: Freedom of contract under Article 6; Interpretation of the Convention and of CISG contracts; Sales contract formation, validity, defenses to enforcement; Liability exemptions; Obligations of the parties, including conforming delivery & notice of non-conformity; Liability and remedies for breach, including specific performance, damages, avoidance; Key reservations under Articles 92-96. Joseph Lookofsky is Professor of Law at the University of Copenhagen. In addition to his Danish law degrees, he holds a J.D. degree from the New York University School of Law. He is a Member of the New York State Bar and former in-house counsel for United Artists Corporation.

The Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is now being applied extensively both by international arbitral tribunals and by domestic courts of its more than 70 Member States. But do they also apply it in the same manner? Although Article 7 of the CISG underscores "the need to promote uniformity in its application," it gives little guidance as to how to achieve this goal. Each judge and arbitrator is influenced by the legal methodology of his home jurisdiction. Therefore it is somewhat of a paradox that while the number of Member States is constantly increasing, so too is the threat of variation in application. In this book, the most important issues of the CISG's methodology are analyzed by leading experts from five continents. Some contributors provide a thorough analysis of the central topics of interpretation while others enter almost uncharted territories.

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.

With the growing complexity of international trade, practitioners in commercial law increasingly need access to scholarly sources and foreign case law. A goal of the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG) has been the standard of a “global jurisconsultorium,” where judges and arbitrators would share resources and consult what has been done in foreign jurisdictions. However, without the prior work of material-collecting, proper translation into English, and organization of the resulting abundance of material, compliance with this goal would be impossible. The Practitioner’s Guide to the CISG is a direct answer to that need and a decisive step toward fulfilling that goal. Written by three scholars from six different countries, the book represents the best analyses of CISG cases available anywhere. The chapters that follow provide legal counsel with easy, organized access to key, legal case abstracts drawn from multiple jurisdictions and valuable, summary comments on each article of the CISG.

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.
