This is an important module if you are considering working in the area of transnational commercial law. In the module, you will critically examine selected aspects of transnational commercial law, all of which are likely to be particularly relevant in international commercial practice. You will critically examine, in detail, some of the challenges of cross-border commercial transactions, as well as harmonisation and uniform law initiatives; and key international instruments such as the Vienna Convention on the International Sale of Goods, in addition to proposals for the future development of this area of law. You will also consider the implications of the UNCITRAL Model Law and the New York Convention in international commercial arbitration.
