Invitation to Scholars

 

The Institute of International Commercial Law of the Pace University School of Law extends an invitation to scholars at Law schools and Faculties of Law who research the CISG or the UNIDROIT Principles or the Principles of European Contract Law. The Institute invites scholars to submit:

Masters or Doctoral dissertations on aspects of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) or the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts or the Principles of European Contract Law (PECL) and essays on these subjects for inclusion in this database.

We encourage access to the database Pace maintains on the Internet. It contains thousands of citations to scholarly writings on the CISG or the UNIDROIT Principles or the PECL; its sections on jurisprudence contain presentations on hundreds of CISG cases. The database also contains much information on legislative history and other items of interest to scholars in this field of law.

An invitation to share scholarship at Faculties of Law

The Institute of International Commercial Law would be honored to publish on the Internet Masters or Doctoral dissertations on the CISG, the UNIDROIT Principles or the PECL that have been approved for publication by one's Faculty of Law. Interested persons should send to Pace a disk and a printed or typed text of the dissertation. Pace will convert the text of the dissertation to the language of the Internet (HTML) and return an Internet-readied presentation to the author for proofing. Following receipt of the author's edits, the Pace University School of Law would be honored to publish the dissertation on the World-Wide Web and send to the author a hard-copy Internet off-print of the dissertation. There are two parts to this offer:

For an illustration of the manner in which we present this material on the Internet, see for example our Annotated Text of CISG article 66. This is a provision of the CISG that deals with passage of risk. From this annotated text, you may link to the full texts of four theses on this subject: a perspective authored by a scholar of Canada at a Canadian university, a perspective authored by a scholar of Greece at an English university, a perspective authored by a scholar of France at a French university, and a perspective authored by a scholar of The Netherlands at a German university. These happen to be English texts. Faculty approved theses in ALL languages are eligible for publication under this program, subject to the proviso stated above: the author of this material must proof our Internet readied text of the thesis prior to the time we enter it on the "net".

We seek to help set in place a global jurisconsultorium whereby jurists and arbitrators of all jurisdictions, counsel who plead before them, fellow law students, fellow thesis writers and other scholars who comment will have an improved opportunity to consider doctrine and jurisprudence on uniform law from all jurisdictions, including jurisdictions other than their own. You can help by participating in this program.

A further invitation: The Clive M. Schmitthoff Essay Competition

We also invite students at Faculties of Law to participate in the Clive M. Schmitthoff Essay Competition. The rules of the Competition are stated in our Essay Announcement.

We extend two separate invitations

We extend two separate invitations: a dissertation invitation, and an invitation to participate in the Pace Essay Competition. The dissertations we offer to publish on the Internet may be in the language of the scholar's choice. Masters and Doctorate authors are encouraged to contact Vikki Rogers, Director, Institute of International Commercial Law <vrogers@law.pace.edu>. For the Essay Competition, submissions must be in English and should be addressed as indicated in the Essay Announcement.
