Obiettivi formativi

 Il corso sarà tenuto dal Visiting Professor Prof. Marin Ebers. Il corso intende addestrare gli studenti alla ricerca delle fonti che governano le vendite internazionali. Gli allievi saranno invitati a riflettere sulla portata effettiva degli strumenti convenzionali esistenti. Si chiederà ai frequentanti di comparare il proprio diritto interno con le fonti sovranazionali. Gli studenti dovranno acquisire familiarità con la giurisprudenza emessa anche in altri Stati in applicazione della CISG.

The course will be taught by the visiting professor Martin Ebers. The Course will train students to research the legal sources ruling international sale. Students will be invited to consider the effective scope of existing international instruments. Students attending  classes will have to compare their domestic law with international and supranational sources. Students will be requested to become familiar with the case law concerning the CISG both  in their country and in other jurisdictions.

Risultati dell'apprendimento attesi

Gli studenti avranno un quadro complessivo della normativa applicabile in materia di vendita di beni mobili. L'apprendimento consentirà di vedere come regole apparentemente chiare possano causare perplessità interpretative a seconda del contesto giuridico in cui sono inserite.

Students will gain a comprehensive view of rules applicable in the field of sale of goods. Students will realize how rules quite clear at first sight may cause uncertainties in their application depending on the complex background on which the are deposited.

Programma

Il corso indaga sulla complessità delle fonti in materia di vendita internazionale di beni mobili.

In questa materia si sono succeduti tentativi ripetuti di uniformare il diritto attraverso le frontiere.  Talvolta ciò è avvenuto in aree geografiche circoscritte (ad es. paesi Scandinavi), in altri casi si è proceduto a disegni più ampi (ULF e ULIS, 1964; CISG, 1980). In ogni caso non tutto quanto riguarda la vendita è governato dalle norme uniformi. Ciò pone un onere complesso per l’interprete che deve combinare fonti diverse, considerando che in qualche caso le norme internazionali sono state adottate anche per le fattispecie interne. Per le modalità di svolgimento, si RACCOMANDA DI LEGGERE LA SEZIONE NOTE (IN INGLESE)  

Il corso incoraggia gli studenti a esplorare il processo di uniformazione del diritto, quindi a considerare quale sia la portata della CISG, quali argomenti non siano compresi e quale sia la legge applicabile.

Infine lo studente è sollecitato a comparare il diritto esistente  con il progetto di una European Sales law (CESL) e il più recente (2015) disegno di dettare regole per  l’acquisto on line di contenuti informatici e beni materiali. Esperti che lavorano nell’ambito delle vendite internazionali o che collaborano con l’UNCITRAL saranno invitati a tenere lezioni o seminari.

The course will explore the complexity of sources in the field of law regulating international sales.

Repeated efforts to reach uniform regulation of obligations and effects of the contract of sale have produced a number of conventions; some at the regional level (e.g. initially in the Nordic countries), some at the UN level. The 1980 Vienna convention has in part overcome defects of the previous 1964 discipline, but has not covered the whole field of issues involved in a contract of sale.

The result is rather complex as some countries are parties to various instruments and it is necessary to combine different  instruments according to the parties involved in the contract. In a few states the international regime has supplanted also the domestic rules. The course will encourage students to explore initially the process by which uniform rules have been negotiated and the difficulties experimented with some initial texts. As a second step the course will explore the scope of the Vienna convention (CISG), the issues left to the national laws, the procedure to identify the proper law applicable.

Finally the course will compare the project for a European sales law (CESL) with the more recent project (2015) for contract rules for online purchase of digital content and tangible goods.

Experts involved in the practice of international sales or working for UNCITRAL will be invited to deliver lectures or to hold seminars.
