WHAT IS INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW?
International sales are cross border sales contracts. Why is this important – this is how our shops get stocked with our favourite imported products. Freedom of contract is the Common Law’s desire to preserve it for International Sale contracts. It is important as it is necessary to determine under which law the contract is governed if a dispute was to arise. The Common Law, respects personal autonomy rather than being paternalistic, this attracts international traders due to its informality and minimum state intervention. International Trade Law is important as it makes trading easier, cost effective and quicker. Such example would be that oral contracts are enforceable whereas in other countries contracts have to be formal and written down.
