Center for Transnational Commercial Law (CTCL) at National Law University, Delhi is going to conduct a short course on “Comparative Contract Law and Practice”.
Course Duration: 12th – 22nd May, 2016
Comparative Law is one of the most fascinating subjects in the legal syllabus. Comparative lawyers examine the differences and similarities of legal rules and doctrines across various legal systems. Contract law in particular has certain features that exist in a radically different shape, or are not present at all in other jurisdictions. An awareness of such differences is vital for students if they wish to be prepared for the challenges of legal practice in a globalised world, where many of them will be faced with cross-border dealings on a daily basis.
The UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts (PICC) are designed to be an elaboration of an international restatement of general principles of contract law. They attempt to meet the perceived need for a harmonization of the law of International Commercial Contracts in a fashion that avoids some of the problems that more traditional tools of harmonization have met with in the past.
The specific areas covered in the course, while not exhaustive, are sufficient to provide participants with a good understanding of Comparative and Transnational Contract Law & Practice. Additionally, since the course materials include numerous cases (from common law and civil law jurisdictions), and hypothetical discussion problems, the program contents also are consistent with the course objectives of familiarizing students with case law analysis from various judicial bodies and jurisdictions outside India.
The Comparative Contract Law expositions of Common Law (mainly from U.K., Australia, India) and Civil Law (Germany) along with comprehensive coverage of PICC, by Professor Vogenauer, would be adequately backed up by suitable references from Indian Contract Law – provisions, cases & comment, by Dr. Risham Garg, the NLUD host Faculty for the course, who also manages activities of the Center for Transnational Commercial Law at NLUD.
