Contemporary Challenges for Uniform Private Law – International Seminar
Uniform private law has a great impact on international trade. The unification of rules on legal institutions facilitates trade and fosters international cooperation. It leads to the decrease of transactional costs and reduces the risk of litigation as well as the likelihood of the occurrence of phenomenon of forum shopping.
The changing world poses new challenges for uniform private law.
- How to ensure that the instruments of uniform law are applied in the same way in the different countries?
- Is there any chance of unifying the law in new areas arising from rapid technological development (artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles)?
- Can soft law instruments serve the process of unification of private law?
These three issues will be the subject of a seminar taking place at the Faculty of Law and Administration of the University of Szczecin on 16 May 2023 at 10:30 a.m.
