Professor Ferrari publishes a paper on contracts of carriage and international conventions

Professor Franco Ferrari, the Center’s Director, has just published a paper in the Oslo Law Review. The paper addresses the contentious relationship between uniform substantive law conventions and private international law rules in relation to contracts of carriage. In the paper, Professor Ferrari discusses why resort to private international law has to give way to the application of uniform substantive law conventions. The paper, which was presented at a  conference that took place in Oslo in May 2018, as well as other papers presented at the conference (convened by Professor Giuditta Cordero-Moss, a former scholar-in-residence at the Center) can be found here.

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
