- This collection of essays reflects the author's view that commercial law draws on all those legal principles, from whatever branch of law they are drawn, which bear on the resolution of commercial disputes. Thus viewed, commercial law draws on the law of contract, tort, property, equity, trusts, unjust enrichment and corporate essays, all of which feature in the essays in this volume. The focus of the essays is on fundamental concepts, policies and problems rather than on the transient minutiae of rules. In consequence the essays continue to be cited by courts from the Supreme Court downwards even 30 years after their publicationA collection of essays on English commercial law over the past 50+ yearsISBN: 978-0-19-882580-7Many of the essays were considered ground-breaking at the time of publication and continue to be widely citedThe first known academic course on transnational commercial law - the institutions, processes and instruments of international harmonisation - was fashioned by the author and introduced into the Oxford University postgraduate law curriculum in the mid-1990s. The present volume is a collection of essays on transnational commercial law published since that time. It is in four parts, covering a range of harmonisation issues, the role of private and public international law in instruments of harmonisation, usage and the lex mercatoria and the resolution of cross-border commercial disputesISBN: 978-0-19-882581-4DOI: 97947-DROFIAE-55378-0043The writer is the author of the three Official Commentaries on the Convention and its three Protocols, the first of which is in its third edition and the second in its second edition.Examines the highly successful Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment 2001 (the Cape Town Convention) and its associated Aircraft Protocol, which provide for aircraft secured financiers, title-retention sellers and lessors a set of basic default remedies, the ability to protect their priority by registration in an International Registry based in Dublin and creditor protection in the event of the debtor's insolvency.ISBN: 978-2-8027-5630-9ISBN: 978 88 86 44 93 66DOI: 10.1017/S0020589316000221A critical examination of proposals for an addition to Article 14 of the EC Regulation on the law applicable to contractual obligations in civil and commercial matters (Rome I) as regards the law that should govern third-party conflicts, such as those between competing assignees or between an assignee and the assignor's liquidator. The author argues that the only sensible solution in most cases is the law of the assignor's place of business.This work examines the nature and sources of transnational commercial law and the institutions and processes of harmonisation, followed by an analysis of many of the leading international commercial law instruments. In the second edition, which has been completely updated, it has been substantially revised and expandedA comprehensive analysis of the 2001 Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment (the Cape Town Convention) and the 2007 Luxembourg Protocol on railway rolling stock.

The Cape Town Convention has already received 61 ratifications and the Aircraft Protocol 55 ratifications. With its enactment of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth), Australia joined the many jurisdictions that have adopted a modern, functional approach to security interests based on art 9 of the United States Uniform Commercial Code and the Canadian Personal Property Security Acts. But domestic laws are not well suited to high-value equipment that moves regularly across national borders, such as aircraft objects and railway rolling stock, or to equipment that is not on Earth at all, such as satellites and other space assets. The conflict rule designating the lex situs as the applicable law does not work for objects having no fixed situs or for assets in space where no private law exists. Moreover, even if a uniform conflict rule could be devised it would not overcome major differences in national laws governing secured transactions. Hence the need for an international regime governing the creation, perfection and priority of interests in mobile equipment, with an international registry for the registration of such interests and priority rules based on the order of registration. This paper describes the key features of the Cape Town Convention and Aircraft Protocol and their relationship to national law.ISBN: 0065-1915A comprehensive analysis of the 2001 Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment (the Cape Town Convention) and associated Aircraft Protocol.
