International trade and business law courses are offered by most law schools and business departments. An Increasing number of practising lawyers are required to provide expert advice on international business practices and export trade law. This book is an ideal sourcebook for students and practitioners who are interested in International Business Transactions and want to gain familiarity with the law and practice of international trade law, policies and ethics. The book contains twelve chapters. These chapters deal extensively with The United nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, The UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts, Incoterms 2000, Carriage of Goods by Sea, Land and Air, Letters of Credit law, the World Trade Organization, International Intellectual Property Law, Anti-dumping and Countervailing laws, and International Commercial Arbitration law.
Each chapter deals with an important aspect of international trade and business by describing and analysing the relevant law, policies and ethical issues; posing tutorial problems or providing sample examination questions and lists of references; and incorporating extracts from relevant international documents and conventions.
