Professor Ferrari, the Center’s Director, has just published the third edition of a book entitled “international contract law” in German. Like the previous two editions, the book contains article-by-article commentaries of the most important conflict of laws and substantive instruments addressing international contracts applicable in Europe, namely the Regulation (EC) No 593/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 June 2008 on the law applicable to contractual obligations (Rome I), the 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), the 1956 Convention on Carriage of Goods by Road, and the 1988 UNIDROIT Convention on International Factoring. The 1750 page book allows practitioners and scholars to find guidance on how to solve the most intricate conflict of laws and substantive law problems falling under the purview of the aforementioned instruments. This is also why the courts of several countries, including the German Supreme Court (most recently in its decision of 7 December 2017, docket n. VII ZR 101/14), and the Austrian Supreme Court (most recently in its decision of 29 November 2017, docket n. 8Ob12/17y), have had resort to the earlier editions of the book.
