Research Handbook on International Commercial Contracts

by Andrew Hutchison & Franziska Myburgh

This comprehensive Research Handbook examines the continuum between private ordering and state regulation in the lex mercatoria, highlighting constancy and change in this dynamic and evolving system in order to offer an in-depth discussion of international commercial contract law. International scholars from a range of jurisdictions and legal cultures across Africa, North America and Europe, dissect a plethora of contract types, including sale, insurance, shipping, credit, negotiable instruments and agency against the backdrop of key legal regimes commonly chosen in international agreements.

Hardwicke’s Jeffrey Thomson has contributed a chapter on the history of marine and commercial insurance contract law in England from the 15th Century to the modern day.
