Global Sales Law Conference: The Convention on the International Sales of Goods (CISG) at 35: Challenges Today


On the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (“CISG”), Georgetown’s Center on Transnational Business and the Law and the UNCITRAL Secretariat will host a one-day event addressing the present status of the CISG and future options. 

Panelists will discuss trends in the use of the CISG in North American legal practice, the future of uniform contract law, and the promotion and role of the CISG in international economic development. 

The goal is to take stock of current developments, in particular those relevant for the United States and Canada (e.g., opting out; withdrawal of declarations; CESL and other related projects); to foster greater awareness of the CISG among practitioners; and to explore the contribution of the CISG to legal technical assistance. 

This event is co-sponsored by the American Society of International Law, the American Branch of the International Law Association,  the ABA Section of International Law, the Institute of International Commercial Law, Pace Law School, and the International Law Institute.
