The U.N. Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods: What You (and Your Clients) Need to Know about the Federal Law of Contracts

On January 1, 1988, the UN CISG became the federal law of contracts for the sale of goods in the U.S.  Although businesses may effectively opt out of the convention, in many instances, the CISG automatically applies to transactions involving U.S. companies contracting with businesses in 79 other countries.  The purpose of this presentation is to provide a brief overview of key provisions of the CISG that differ from Article 2 of the UCC.  These include: writing requirements, use of parole evidence, the battle of the forms, disclaiming warranties and remedies for breach of contract.
