Although international sales of goods are in some respects similar to domestic sales, the distance that the goods must usually travel from seller to buyer and the time taken to travel that distance create many legal and practical issues, both for the seller’s obligations in relation to the goods and the buyer’s obligations in relation to payment. Choice of law is always an important issue in any international transaction, but an impressive degree of international uniformity of sales law has been achieved as a result of the widespread adoption of the United Nations (UN) Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The goal of this subject is to introduce students to the special issues raised by international sales, and the operation of the international instruments that have been developed to provide uniform solutions to those issues.
