Overview

Among the most significant legal developments of our time is the emergence of a European private law. The European Union enacts directives which profoundly affect the practice, teaching and study of core areas of "classical" private law. Internationally, commissions have formulated principles of European trusts, contract and commercial law. Furthermore, uniform private law can be found in a number of international conventions. This book gathers together fundamental texts from these three sources into one convenient volume. Its emphasis is on general civil and commercial law, particularly on the obligations and property aspects of these. Fully updated, it contains the recent directives in the areas of E-Commerce, Electronic Signatures and Late Payments. It also makes available for the first time English language versions of a number of texts by international commissions. With full references to the implementation of the directives in Denmark, Eire, Finland, Sweden and the UK, this book will be a useful resource for those interested in European private law.

    Very useful resource

    This book is a timely and useful resource for anyone interested in the future of private law in Europe. Part III is likely to be of particular interest to those engaged in the study of comparative law, as well as those interested in 'top down' harmonisation.
