Today's international commercial law regime is firmly based on two complementary instruments: the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), which sets rules for sales contracts, and the more comprehensive UNIDROIT Principles, which also apply to more complex contracts such as those for services, construction and investment. The UNIDROIT Principles have also proven their value in contract drafting and dispute resolution.;This unmatched resource - available both in loose-leaf format and (for the CISG) on CD-ROM - fulfills the need for a comprehensive guide on how both instruments are interpreted and applied in the various contracting states. It provides: detailed abstracts of all cases decided under both instruments by courts and arbitral tribunals worldwide; the full text of each decision in its original language (when available); the complete texts of the CISG and the UNIDROIT Principles; all reservations and declarations of CISG States Parties; a bibliography for each instrument, listing all significant references both by category and by article; and a subject index.;In addition, the CD-ROM version features retrieval of all CISG cases not only chronologically and by country, but also through access to an analytical index composed of some 800 specific issues. Currently, UNILEX reports nearly 500 cases and includes nearly 2,000 bibliographical references - numbers that increase rapidly with each semi-annual update. No lawyer or business executive handling international sales, services or constructions contracts should be without it.;The reporting system was originally conceived as a research project of the Centre for Comparative and Foreign Studies (a joint venture of the Italian National Research Council, the University of Rome, and the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law - UNIDROIT).
