The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is an international commercial law treaty which provides a set of uniform rules governing the formation of the contract of sale and the rights and obligations of the seller and the buyer arising from such a contract.
As more and more countries adopt the CISG (currently, with 94 state parties from all over the world), the number of businesses and cross-boundary sales contracts that fall within its sphere of application grows. A working knowledge of the CISG will therefore be highly beneficial to both transaction and litigation lawyers.
In this webinar, Professor Dr Ulrich G. Schroeter, a renowned CISG expert, will share with participants the ‘must knows’ from international court practice that has developed under the CISG. In particular, he will address some of the most frequently litigated issues under the CISG, including those of particular relevance to Hong Kong businesses, which are therefore important for practitioners to be aware of at both the contract drafting and litigation stage.
