Yearbook of CISG cases:  pre-1990

The CISG Translation Network

- For other case yearbooks, go to <http://cisgw3.law.pace.edu/cisg/text/YB2006-2000.html>; <http://cisgw3.law.pace.edu/cisg/text/YB1999-1995.html>; and <http://cisgw3.law.pace.edu/cisg/text/YB1994-1990.html>. For case law by country, go to <http://cisgw3.law.pace.edu/cisg/text/casecit.html>. The schedule of case law by country has an added feature, identification of each Article of the CISG cited in each case.
- CASE ANNOTATIONS. For case law annotations of each Article of the CISG, go to <http://www.cisg.law.pace.edu/cisg/text/digest-cases-toc.html> 3,000 cases 10,000 case annotations.
In the preparation of case law yearbooks, annotations and case translations, we have drawn heavily on data assembled by members of the Autonomous Network of CISG Websites. Twenty universities and law firms have banded together to serve traders and counsel of their countries and other countries by reporting and sharing uniform law case law of their countries and regions with persons of all countries and regions. For a description of the network they have set in place and an identification of the participants, go to <http://cisgw3.law.pace.edu/network.html>. For a report on The CISG Translation Network, go to <http://www.cisg.law.pace.edu/cisg/text/cisg-translation-network.html>.
Together with contributors - participants include law leaders of tomorrow (members of the Willem C. Vis Moot Alumni Association and Research Assistants), law faculty members and practicing attorneys for whose pro bono contributions to this service to our profession we are most grateful - we seek to "tame the dragons of uniform law", to help to set in place a global jurisconsultorium, to promote uniformity of interpretation by providing ready access to case law of sister signatories to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
