Course Description

This course examines the law governing the domestic and international sale of goods as regulated by the Uniform Commercial Code (“UCC”) and the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods ("CISG"). The course will emphasize the use of statutory default rules to define the commercial relationship and to allocate commercial risks. In doing so the defaults provided by the UCC and the CISG will be compared. Specific topics include acceptance and rejection of goods, contract interpretation in business transactions, formation of contract issues, warranty liability, risk of loss, and remedies. The course will also deal with contracts concluded via electronic means and, although focused on commercial sales transactions, will to some extent examine also consumer transactions.
