Webinar: To Boldly Go - Data as the CISG's Next (But Probably Not Final) Frontier

10/20/2020 02:00 pm 10/20/2020 03:00 pm Australia/Melbourne Webinar: To Boldly Go - Data as the CISG's Next (But Probably Not Final) Frontier

The Department of Business Law and Taxation and International Trade and International Commercial Law Research Group at Monash Business School invite you to the webinar, ‘To Boldly Go - Data as the CISG's Next (But Probably Not Final) Frontier’.

Since 1980, the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) has provided a harmonised legal framework for the conduct of international goods trade, seeking to lower merchants' transaction costs and promote international trade.

But the CISG governs the international sales of goods only. Should it also govern electronic data trade?

Please join Dr Benjamin Hayward, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Business Law and Taxation at Monash Business School as he argues that the framework could realise its intended benefits in this increasingly important area of economic activity.

Dr Hayward is the author of Conflict of Laws and Arbitral Discretion: The Closest Connection Test (Oxford University Press, 2017), and researches in the international sales law, international commercial arbitration, and private international law fields.
