The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is one of the most successful international uniform law treaties. The treaty has been ratified by 80 countries around the world, amongst them the US, China and most of the countries of the European Union (the UK being the notable exception). The purpose of the CISG is to provide a modern, uniform and fair regime for contracts for the international sale of goods. The convention governs contracts for the sale of goods between parties whose places of business are in different Contracting States, excluding sales to and from consumers. The course provides an introduction to the CISG and puts an emphasis on class participation.
Due to class capacity constraints, there will be a maximum number of participants in this class. The places will be distributed to the students on a first come first served basis. Please register with the course instructor, Professor Ruth Janal, via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
The class will be held in English. Successful participants will receive 6 ECTS-credits and a "Proof of Legal Language Skills in English" pursuant to § 15 para. 1 (b) of the study regulations for the study of law with the first legal examination (published in the official journal of Freie Universität Berlin no. 68/2007 - Fremdsprachenfachkompetenz).
There will be a written final examination.
The course will be held at irregular intervals. It will be available in the summer term 2014. Schließen
