Book Review: Gustavo Moser, Rethinking Choice of Law in Cross-border Sales (Eleven International Publishing 2018)

  • Luca G. Castellani


The general conclusion of the book is that uniform law – namely the CISG – is often excluded because it is simply not liked by traders and their legal advisors and that the reasons for this dislike are unclear and may be unrelated to rational legal arguments. This is a dangerous approach that does not serve commercial interests and may expose involved lawyers to professional liability. Hence, this conclusion highlights the importance of capacity-building. Universities and bar associations could do much in that respect.
