Nicole Kornet delivered a paper on 'The (Ir)Relevance of the Applicable Law for Self-Sufficient Commercial Contracts'24 April 2012
Nicole Kornet delivered a paper on 'The (Ir)Relevance of the Applicable Law for Self-Sufficient Commercial Contracts' on Thursday 22 March for the Themis Law Network annual seminar. The Themis Law Network brings together the University of Bocconi (Milan), Esade University (Barcelona), Freie Universität (Berlin), Université Paris Est Créteil Val de Marne (Paris) and Maastricht University with the purpose of increasing international know-how and expertise in business law. This year's seminar was hosted by ESADE University, and brought together academics and masters students from the participating universities to discuss topics concerning International Commercial Litigation. Nicole's lecture addressed the problems associated with interpreting and enforcing contracts that, in the absence of a uniform law on commercial contracts, aim to be self-sufficient and to operate largely autonomously from the applicable law. Next year's Themis seminar will be hosted by Maastricht University.
