Focus in 2020: Transnational Commercial Law
Based on the positive experience gained in this programme since 2013, the EBS Law Term 2020 will continue to focus on one of the most fascinating areas of international commercial law - the Transnational Commercial Law.
Transnational Commercial Law deals with the growing body of internationally unified or harmonized law in areas of particularly high relevance to international commerce. Some of the instruments of transnational commercial law, such as the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards, are extremely successful in global business. Others are pioneer instruments with promising perspectives such as the UNIDROIT Convention of Cape Town on International Interests in Mobile Equipment and its Protocols on Railway Rolling Stock or Space Assets such as satellites.
From a methodical viewpoint, Transnational Commercial Law raises the intriguing question of comparative law as to why some instruments are so successful and what can be learned from them for designing other instruments. In addition, creating Transnational Commercial Law instruments requires specific negotiation skills and high-level diplomacy in order to get states to say “yes” to a new instrument.
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.
