Sales and International Sales

This course is the study of sales of personal property. It focuses on major issues of sales law, both domestic and international, by engaging in a comparative examination of Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The CISG is a treaty which has been extensively adopted throughout the world (including the United States) and has become the international sales law of most major trading nations. Businesses in the United States that export or import goods are increasingly seeking legal advice regarding transnational sales contracts.

Grading and Method of Evaluation:
