Professor Ferrari co-edits and co-authors book on international contract law in German

Professor Ferrari, the Center’s Director, has just published the third edition of a book on international contract law in German. Over the years, the book, co-authored with six German colleagues, has become the go-to-book for all things relating to international contract law, since it governs not only the most important conflict of laws instrument in force in Europe in the area of contract law (the so-called Rome-I Regulation), but also the most important uniform substantive law instruments dealing with specific types of international contracts (such as the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods [CISG] and the Convention on Transport of Goods by Road [CMR]). The earlier editions of this book have often been cited by courts of German speaking countries, including the German Supreme Court.
