Programma

The course is held in co-teaching by Professor Salvadori (Private international law) and professor Poncibò (The Law of International Contracts). Salvadori is responsibile for the first part and Poncibò the second part. 

The course consists of two parts.

The first part offers the opportunity to become familiar with the national, international and European rules that govern international litigation in civil and commercial matters. Through several practical examples, it will present issues that frequently arise before state courts around the world, such as international jurisdiction, lis pendens, forum non conveniens, anti-suit injunctions, judicial cooperation in civil matters, and the recognition and enforcement of civil judgments. The first part of the course will be mainly devoted to rules of European law (Regulation (EU) n. 1215/2012 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgements in civil and commercial matters - Bruxelles I bis; Regulation (EC) n. 593/2008 on the law applicable to contractual obligations -Rome I). 

The second part consists of the laboratory of international contract drafting (Poncibò). In the second part, students will analyze recurrent clauses which shall be present in a state-of-the-art international contract for the sale of goods and the main issues which may arise at the moment of its negotiation, at the moment of its drafting and also at the moment of its performance and interpretation. The course also provides for an introduction to agency, distribution and franchising. Therefore, the course will introduce the student to the precontractual liability at the time of negotiation and formation of an international contract and to the main issues related to contract performance, representation and warranties, liability, hardship, termination and remedies for breach of contract. The course will also address main issues regarding the arising of international disputes. For instance, the value and implications of the choice of law clause.
