This work provides a readable yet in-depth account of the law and commercial practice relating to bills of exchange, cheques and documentary credits, and is designed as a first point of reference for all those involved with international trade.

This edition has been updated to include recent case law and the chapter on litigation/conflict of law has been changed to take account of the Woolf Reforms.

It also covers the entire range of electronic banking and payment systems and their treatment in the law. A new feature is that the authors paragraph number the book to make it easier to refer to in court.
