Is Revision Due For Article 2?, David Frisch Jan 1986

Is Revision Due For Article 2?, David Frisch

Law Faculty Publications

Although we ask whether Article 2 should be re-examined, it is not our only question. A second question posed is: What are the sources to which one should look in order to discover whether there is a strong enough need to justify a revision? In addition to mentioning sources, we offer a few examples illustrative of the fruits which these sources can produce. By doing so, we hope to spur additional interest because, if discussion of a new Article 2 is to begin, the sooner it begins the better. Revisions take time. Six years can pass from the time a ...


The Law Governing Arbitration Agreements In International Trade, Daniele Lingua Jan 1986

The Law Governing Arbitration Agreements In International Trade, Daniele Lingua

LLM Theses and Essays

This paper on the law applicable to arbitration agreements will start with an examination of the provisions adopted in international conventions on arbitration. The reason for this approach lies in the fact that, when national statutes contain choic of law rules specifically applicable to arbitration agreements, such rules tend to conform to those adopted by the conventions. However, problems of incompatibility between national choice of law provisions and the interpretation of international conventions may arise in the case of those countries which extend their general choice of law rules regarding contracts to rules concerning international arbitration agreements. Finally, this paper ...


U.C.C. Survey: General Provisions, Bulk Transfers, And Documents Of Title, David Frisch Jan 1986

U.C.C. Survey: General Provisions, Bulk Transfers, And Documents Of Title, David Frisch

Law Faculty Publications

A drafting compromise by the U.C.C. drafters in section 1-105 dictated the state having an "appropriate relation" to govern choice of law problems in the absence of a contractual clause, and if there is a clause, a "reasonable relation" to the state selected. The purpose was to leave choice of law problems to the general rules of the common law. Thus, some courts in breach of warranty cases continue to apply the tests of "place of injury" for personal injury suits and "place of contracting" for what does not involve personal injury, while others look for the state ...


Fishing And Selling, Victor P. Goldberg Jan 1986

Fishing And Selling, Victor P. Goldberg

Faculty Scholarship

Consumers are a lot like fish, out there waiting to be hooked. Like most images, this one is a caricature of reality. The choice and search effort of consumers is suppressed in order to explore the implications of selling activity by manufacturers and retailers. In particular, the fishing analogy suggests that there is a tendency toward excessive selling activity if sellers do not take into account the effects of their activity on the costs of their rivals. However, sellers, like fishermen, have an incentive to arrange their affairs to mitigate the dissipation of rents. This argument is developed in Section ...


Dancing On The Edge Of Article 9, James J. White Jan 1986

Dancing On The Edge Of Article 9, James J. White

Articles

Despite the fact that Article 9 is a much more comprehensive personal property security statute than was ever found in American law prior to its enactment, cases continue to present issues on the scope of the Article. Gone are the cases in which a court was called upon to determine whether a "conditional sales contract" could be dealt with under the "factor's lien" law; it is now clear that all such personal property security devices are governed by Article 9. Yet many problems remain for the unwary lawyer. I will identify several and deal in detail with three of ...
