This book presents a comprehensive treatment of all key aspects of private international trade law. It shows how international trade law operates in its political, economic and business contexts and provides a clear and concise explanation of the theoretical framework, which underpins the law against the background of modern trade documentation and export practice.
The author takes a practical approach to the subject incorporating example contractual clauses, forms and diagrams to demonstrate how the law works in practice, examining legal complexities in cases and materials. The book sets out summaries of the more significant cases, and covers significant cases on documentary credits, private international law, shipping, sale of goods and arbitration. It examines the influence of ECJ case law on private international law. Detailed footnotes guide the reader to further and more detailed research into key topics.
