This course examines the impact of law on the enterprises that conduct international trade and business and on particular transactions entered into by such enterprises. The law concerning the formation and some other aspects of international sales contracts (such as trade terms particularly, the Incoterms (latest version) and the impact of the CISG) as well as the law relating to the international transport of goods by sea and international payments (documentary credits) will be examined. The course will also explore selected legal aspects of the World Trade Organisation and one particular regional grouping (namely the European Union). In addition, a study will be made of the law concerning some of the methods by which private international legal disputes are resolved with the focus on international commercial arbitration.
