Object of proceedings

"The UNCITRAL Congress was designed to enable the participants to consider the accomplishments achieved in the progressive unification of international trade law during the past 25 years and . . . the needs that could be foreseen . . . [to provide] up-to-date information and practical guidance concerning principal legal texts of universal relevance; an opportunity to express opinions on the practical value of current laws and rules governing world commerce; a forum to voice . . . practical needs as a basis for possible future work by UNCITRAL and other agencies involved in formulating texts for international commerce" (Gerold Herrmann, Secretary of UNCITRAL) iii

Unification by legal doctrine: the role of legal doctrine in the unification process in general (from the preparatory studies for international conventions to the commentaries on them); the idea of an international restatement of contract law (the UNIDROIT draft Principles for International Commercial Contracts). Unification by contract practice.]

Proposals for an international tribunal to interpret uniform legal texts: Louis B. Sohn 50-54

SALE OF GOODS

The CISG: an overview

United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods; an overview and consideration of some practical issues relating to it: S. Kofi Date-Bah 69-77 [History of the Convention. Highlights of the Convention: structure of the Convention; sphere of application; non-mandatory nature of the Convention. Practical aspects of the rules on formation: revocability of offers; acceptance in prescribed limited circumstances need not be a mirror image of an offer. Practical aspects of the obligations of buyers and sellers.]

Remarks and recommendations

Remarks on behalf of the Union internationale des avocats: Burghard Piltz 85-87 [Comments on the need to share information on interpretations, e.g., Battle-of-the-forms issues, Article 79 force-majeure type issues, "fundamental breach" of contract, the phrase "reasonable time" or "short time". Recommendation: "through international cooperation coordinated by UNCITRAL . . . official comments and recommendations for the application of the Sales Convention; a model could be the Official Comments to the United States Uniform Commercial Code"]

Remarks on behalf of the Section of International Law and Practice of the American Bar Association:
Helen E. Hartnell 91-94 [Comments on the need for clear uniform private international law rules for substantive or formal validity; validity of exemption clauses, etc.]

Remarks on behalf of The Association of the Bar of the City of New York: Michael L. Sher 94-103 [Recommendation: an International Commercial Arbitration Moot on the CISG]

Remarks on behalf of the International Bar Association: Hans van Houtte 83-85 [". . . to make lawyers more familiar with the Sale Convention . . . universities should include the Sales Convention in their regular curriculum . . . the Sales Convention should be the subject matter of publications [and not just specialized publications] . . . general law reviews with a large audience should also discuss the Sales Convention and publish surveys of domestic court decisions relating to the Convention . . . [to make companies] aware that the Sales Convention strikes a fair balance between the rights and the duties of the seller as well as of the buyer . . . the follow-up should also focus on the companies, the customers for which the Convention is intended."]

Remarks by Philippe Kahn (University of Burgundy, Dijon, France) 103-104 ["the phenomenon of the consolidation of the Convention [by national States] is not followed through vigorously enough. . . . The Convention . . . is suffering from the fact that it has not yet been well introduced through professional organizations. . . . [S]cholars have commented on it, and once the comments have been made, . . . students and . . . professors . . . have read them, but there is a whole professional group that is not [sufficiently] informed of this in . . . language that would enable it to be familiar with the advantages and drawbacks of this type of convention. . . . [T]he Convention . . . represent[s] a perfectly appropriate solution for international trade relations, [but] it is necessary to make a major effort and devote a great deal of energy to the task of transferring this entire system to the professional circles . . . particularly the bar organizations and lawyers' associations. There could be [the] . . . apparatus that the ICC employs quite well in certain areas, proposing various alternatives in relation to the Convention by drafting model solutions, if not model clauses."]

PROMOTING WIDER AWARENESS AND ACCEPTANCE OF UNIFORM LAW TEXTS

Ideas for future consideration

Secretary of UNCITRAL (Gerald Herrmann) 252-259 ["Analysis of court interpretations of UNCITRAL texts, with possible recommendations for uniform interpretation. . . . [Having] on-line the status of conventions, the bibliography and similar information. . . . [Having an] international documentation centre for commercial law . . . [Organizing] or co-sponsor[ing] summer courses on uniform commercial law, perhaps similar to the ones at The Hague on private international law and public international law. . . . practice-oriented [courses] and possibly for only two weeks . . . [One could envisage] having in the future something which is already in place for maritime law, namely a World Commercial Law Institute . . ."]

UNCITRAL

1995. UNCITRAL Secretariat. The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law commissioned Professor John O. Honnold (working in conjunction with Professor Michael Joachim Bonell and Ambassador Mahmoud Soliman) to devise a classification of each of the provisions of the CISG. This classification or outline of the CISG (referred to by UNCITRAL as a thesaurus) was designed for recording, classifying, and retrieving decisions under the CISG. As a detailed breakdown of the subjects addressed in each provision of the CISG, it has broader utility: to professors and students as a learning aid, and to practitioners and jurists as a guide to the contents of each article of the CISG.

UNILEX and UNIDROIT on the Internet

The official UNIDROIT World Wide Web site, which is available in its entirety in both English and French, may be accessed at <http://www.unidroit.org>. UNILEX on the Internet <http://www.unilex.info/> is a newer development.

Edited by Michael Joachim Bonell, UNILEX is based on a research project started in 1992 by the Centre for Comparative and Foreign Studies - a joint venture of the Italian National Research Council, the University of Rome I "La Sapienza", and the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT).

Their "about us" page describes this project:

     UNILEX is an "intelligent" database of international case law and bibliography on the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts - two of the most important international instruments for the regulation of international commercial transactions.

     UNILEX contains:

  • detailed abstracts of the most important cases decided under both instruments by courts and arbitral tribunals worldwide;
  • the full text of each decision in its original language (when available);
  • the complete texts of the CISG and the UNIDROIT Principles;
  • a status report on the state of ratifications of CISG, including reservations and declarations by States Parties;
  • a vast bibliography for each instrument.

     UNILEX provides access to the decisions and arbitral awards by:

  • date;
  • country or arbitral tribunal;
  • article number of the instrument;
  • specific issues listed under each article.

     UNILEX provides access to the bibliography by:

  • author;
  • article number of the instrument;
  • area.

This material is in addition available in printed loose-leaf texts marketed by Transnational Publishers, Inc., of Ardsley, New York. There is also a portion of the UNIDROIT website devoted exclusively to the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts; see <http://www.unidroit.org/english/principles/pr-main.htm>.

Researchers are reminded that the complete version of the UNIDROIT Principles contains not only the black-letter rules but also detailed comments on each article including, where appropriate, illustrations. This complete version of the UNIDROIT Principles may be ordered from UNIDROIT, Via Panisperna 28, 00184 Rome, Italy, or seen on the Internet at: <http://www.unidroit.org/english/principles/contents.htm>.
