EBS Law Term
Transnational Commercial Law
After the highly successful programmes on Transnational Commercial Law in the years of 2013 to 2016, EBS Law Term 2017 will continue to focus on this most fascinating and challenging area of international business law.
Transnational Commercial Law (TCL) deals with the growing body of internationally unified or harmonized law in areas of particularly high relevance to international commerce, such as the united nations Cenvention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG), the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards or the most recently enacted UNIDROIT Convention of Cape Town on International Interests in Mobile Equipment and its Protocols on Railway Rolling Stock or Space Assets such as satellites but also the framework of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the World Intellectual Property organisation (WIPO) as well as the dispute resolution mechanisms for investor-state relations as organised by the international Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). In particular, the European Union has enacted a large body unified law for building the European internal market. Thus, certain areas of European commercial law will be studied such as e.g. securities law, foreign trade law, banking and financial regulatory law, antitrust law, intellectual property law or International civil litigation, always with a view to the question whether the regional instruments of harmonized EU law may serve as an example for other regional integration communities in the world or even as global instruments of truly transnational commercial law.
The overall aim of the programme is to provide students with an overview of the most important concepts, methods and general problems of transnational commercial law as well as an introduction to a Selection of important instruments of transnational commercial law.
