In today's globalised world, an understanding of international trade is essential for those studying and practising law, business, banking and finance.

International Trade Law 5th edition, offers a comprehensive and informed analysis of the complexities of an international sale transaction through case law, policy documents, legislation, international conventions and rules adopted by international organisations such as the ICC.

This fifth edition comes fully updated and expanded with new legal developments and analysis. Focusing on international sales of goods and the various relations that arise as a result of sale contract, this book considers and discusses:-

  • Standard trade terms including INCOTERMS 2010, the Convention on International Sales of Goods 1980 and the UNIDROIT Principles for International Commercial Contracts 2004;
  • Issues relating to E-Commerce including electronic transport documents, especially electronic bills of landing;
  • International transportation of cargo, both unimodal (sea, air, land and rail) and multimodal, the various conventions affecting such transportation including the recently adopted Rotterdam Rules;
  • Insurance and payment mechanisms, in particular letters of credit and the UCP 600;
  • Dispute resolution including issues of jurisdiction, applicable law, arbitration and mediation;
  • Corruption as a major challenge to conducting business and the various anti-corruption conventions; updated in this edition to include the UK Bribery Act 2010
In addition to clarifying a range of topics through tables and diagrams, International Trade Law directs the reader to relevant further reading, online resources, and journal articles throughout, offering students an accessible resource to this often challenging area of the law. Indira Carr is Professor of Law at The University of Surrey.
