Professors Ferrari and Torsello publish book entitled International Sales Law – CISG

Professor Franco Ferrari, Director of the Center, and Professor Marco Torsello, professor of law at Verona University School of Law and Hauser Visiting Professor at NYU (2012, 2015), have just published a book on the 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The Convention, which covers more than 3/4 of world trade, is in force in 80 States, including the United States and its most important trading partners.

The book, which is part of West’s Nutshell series, covers the basic rules one should be aware of, so as to avoid surprising when doing business with parties from other countries.

The Center for Transnational Litigation and Commercial Law aims at the advancement of the study and practice of international business transactions and the way to solve related disputes either through litigation or arbitration. As commercial transactions become increasingly international, it is vital to the legal and business communities to understand and analyze the practices and legal principles that govern relationships between firms and between firms and consumers in the international arena
