To all New Law Students Spring 2019

Welcome to the course International Commercial Law.

In this course we will use some tecnology e.g. student learning plattform, Webinars, internet and social media. Most of the lectures will be recorded so you can go back and watch if you did not understand everything.

I think we will have an interesting time together for 10 weeks, from Feburary 25, and I hope that we will have some good discussions on this blogg.

See you soon 🙂
Best regards
Krister

  1. We never went over in the lectures what a commisson agency is when we talked about different agencys in the contract act. Can you please explain what it is?

    • Hi

      I assume you mean a commercial agent. A commercial agent is a type of agent who receives goods from a principal and then sell the goods in his own name. After goods have been sold the agent receives commission from the principal.

  2. Hello,

    For the seminar assignment, we are supposed to present the legal issues, is that only the questions asked to the court? Or should TFEU articles be addressed as well in this part of the assignment?

    • Hi
      If it is not addressed in the questions it can come in the judgement. It all depends on the questions asked.
      Make a decision and we will discuss it on the seminar.
      Best regards

  3. Hello!

    Are there any requirements on the font size, style and spacing in the assignment? Also, does the reference page count in the 6-page limit?

    Thank you in advance!

  4. hej!

    Where exactly on Canvas should we uppload our assignment?

  5. Hello!

    We are allowed to write in the compendium things that are on the page, right? For example, to copy some text from the article next to the article number?

    Thank you in advance! It’s a unique experience to prepare for this exam!

    • Hi

      Uncommented Law text Compendium
      It is allowed to:
      • Underline
      • Use color pen to mark different parts In the text.
      • Make references to other articles and acts in the compendium
      • Write key word on the side margin or on tags attached to the page. The key words cannot form a sentence.
      • Write the full name of an act on a tag attached to the side were the act begins.

      It is for instance NOT allowed to:
      • Write translations of words or sentences into other languages
      • Write explanations of words or sentences.

  6. Hello!

    Regarding Berne Convention, are we allowed to write the ”headings” of the articles on the small post-it tabs we put in the compendium? For example, article 15 has the heading ”Right to Enforce Protected Rights” in cursive. Are we allowed to write something like: ”right to enforce rights” on the post-it tab?
    Or is that too much of a sentence, even though it is a heading?

    Have a nice Sunday!

    • Hi

      I have a hard time to understand the need of it, since you have the table of contents on page 252 – 254 with all headings.

      The exam guards should report it if they are unsure if it is allowed or not and then I must decide if it was too much or not.
      If you start to leave out some words in a sentence it might become another sentence and for that reason not allowed.
      Avoid writing more than a key word, see my answer on post below.

  7. Hello Krister!
    I have a question regarding CISG.
    In an event were two parites are of two different contracting states and the buyer´s state has made an reservation according to Article 96 and the seller’s state has not.
    If those two parties form an oral agreement and then the buyer backs out of the contract based on that they are not bound to article 11.
    Does the buyer have the right do so, even though the seller´s state has not made a reservation of article 96?
    I hope you understand the question and could give me some clarification regarding this matter!

    Kind Regards

    • Hi

      Courts and commentators disagree so it can go either way in a specific case.

      In general, according to PIL (Privat International Law), you should apply the law in seller’s country.
      Some national courts have decided:
      If seller’s country doesn’t have an article 96 reservation, then oral agreement is binding regardless of the fact that buyer’s country has an article 96 reservation or not.
      But there are cases were the buyer was not bound according to national courts in the same situation.
      For more information read §8.8 in the CISG book.

      So, there are no clear answer to the question. Law is wonderful, right? 🙂

      Best regards,

  8. Hello Krister!
    A quick question, are you going to put out the second part of the summary lecture?

    Best regards!

  9. Regarding direct effect, you said on the lecture that a regulation can’t have direct effect. But when you searcing on ”direct effect” on Google, it says that regulations always have direct effect.
    What is true? What is the correct answer if it will be on the exam?
