Comparative Sales (CH 105)


The course will explore the theory, doctrine and practice of both the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Article 2. Students will compare the two legal regimes through statutory analysis and case law. Over 70 countries have adopted CISG and there is now a critical mass of cases and arbitral decisions available to study. Students will also consider whether CISG is being applied in a uniform manner in different jurisdictions and discuss how economic, political, and cultural factors are reflected in court decisions.
