Order Instructions/Description

  1. Choose one remedy available under the CISG. Compare two cases dealing with the same remedy but decided by different national courts or arbitral bodies. Discuss the facts of each case and apply the interpretive provisions of the CISG to the decision. You must provide analysis on the correctness of the decision and decide whether national judges or arbiters have followed the guidelines set out in the preamble and Article 7 of the convention.

WORD LIMIT – 2300 words (maximum)- not minimum than 1700

The word limit does not include footnotes, appendices or bibliography. Footnotes must be used for references only. Any narrative or description contained within footnotes or appendices will be disregarded by the marker. References must be made in OSCOLA format.

The following rules apply to word limits for the coursework assessment:
a. Word count includes everything in the main body of the text (including headings, tables, citations, quotes, lists, etc.).
b. The references, footnotes (provided footnotes only include references) and bibliography are NOT included in the word count.
c. There is no penalty for exceeding the word count but the marker WILL stop reading once the word limit has been reached and nothing further will be taken into account in the allocation of marks. Therefore students will be penalised for a failure to be concise and for failing to conclude their work appropriately.
d. The word count needs to be clearly and correctly stated on the title page of the assignment. Incorrectly understating the word count constitutes an assessment offence and may result in further action.
