Professor Albert H Kritzer is Executive Secretary of the Pace Institute of International Commercial Law, author of the International Contract Manual, and Editor of the award winning database at www.cisg.law.pace.edu. He is the recipient of the 1998 Award for Distinction in International Affairs of the New York State Bar Association, has pioneered countless important projects in international commercial law, and inspired and nurtured generations of researchers.
This book, which is published on the occasion of his eightieth birthday in the continental European tradition of a Festschrift, celebrates Albert and his profound influence on international commercial law and the world trade community.
Albert’s favourite concepts are friendship and sharing — and so it is fitting that scholars and friends from around the world honour this great man by sharing contributions written specifically for him. Albert has devoted his academic career to promote what this book sets out to do: Sharing International Commercial Law across National Boundaries
This Festschrift expresses the gratitude of many who have reaped the benefits of Albert’s sharing, and who wish to share something in return.
