No prior understanding or knowledge of CISG is required.
This course has been designed to help businessmen, lawyers, and law students to understand the basics of international sales. In this course, we will primarily be looking at the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and issues dealt with under this convention. As of 2020, 94 countries have ratified CISG including major players such as the United States, China, Japan, and Germany. CISG was adopted to remove uncertainties and to make buying and selling of goods internationally simple. Each topic is explained with the use of case laws or illustrations to make the course more engaging. For this course, no prior knowledge or experience in the subject is required.
The course is divided into four sections: Introduction and general principles, the scope of the convention, the fundamental breach of contract, and the rights and obligations of the buyers and sellers.
