Understanding International Trade Law provides an accessible overview of International Trade Law and examines in detail the interconnection and the practical relevance of the different contracts to be concluded in pursuance of a single international sale transaction.

The text focuses on the international sale of goods, which are transported by ship, road and air with the main attention being given to sea transport. It introduces the reader to the trade terms used in international sale contracts, in common law and Incoterms in particular.

The text examines how the parties have to fulfil their relative duties, highlighting essential issues of contracts of carriage and cargo insurance. Special attention is given to aspects of financing international trade and securing payment. The text also highlights the importance of choosing the applicable law and dispute resolution mechanism.

This is an ideal stand-alone textbook for students who are studying international trade law as part of an undergraduate degree courses and as a pre-reader for those about to commence graduate vocational study. It will also be ideal for practitioners who want to gain an overview of this area of law.
