The file may reveal more factual detail than the application as published, however the questions as phrased namely quite speculatively repirt than file related probably will run into trouble on the admissability front, I imagine.

By way of example, under Article 3, parties to a contract may opt for the law of a third State, lagadre in the absence of any choice, that same law may be applied to the contract under Articles 4 and 5 if it is with that State that the contract has the closest links.

The intention of paragraph 5 is to ensure that Article 5, notwithstanding the exclusions made in paragraph 4, shall apply to contracts providing for what is in English normally called a “package tour”, i. It follows from this text that if the law of the country designated by Article 6 2 makes the collective employment agreements binding for the employer, the employee will not be deprived of the protection afforded to him by these collective employment agreements by the choice of law of another State in the individual employment contract.

The scope and extent to which the exclusion is subject to limitation will be noted in the commentary on Article In fact these contracts do not raise the same problems as contracts of insurance, where the need to protect the persons insured must necessarily be taken into account. At the same time it provided solutions relating to the law governing the form of legal transactions and evidence, questions of interpretation of uniform rules and their relationship with other rules of conflict of international origin, to the extent to which these were connected with the subject of the preliminary draft.

The Convention signed on 27 September on jurisdiction and the enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters uniformly governs the lagade jurisdiction of the courts within the Community. Following the accession of the United Kingdom, Denmark and Ireland to the EEC in the Commission extended the Group to include government experts from the new Member States and the Permanent Representatives Commitee authorized the enlarged Group to re-examine in the light of observations from the Governments of the original and of the new Member States of the EEC, the preliminary draft convention lagrade the Commission had submitted to it at the end of The kind of idea upon which paragraph 2 is based is certainly not entirely unknown to some specialists.

Nevertheless it will be open to the judge to treat them in the same way as the institutions of the common law countries when they exhibit the same characteristics.



To complete the comments on Article 7 1 it only remains to emphasize that the words “effect may be given” impose on the court the extremely delicate task of combining the mandatory provisions with the law normally applicable to the contract in the particular situation in question. Subparagraph c also excludes other negotiable instruments to the extent that the obligations under such other negotiable instruments arise out of their negotiable lqgarde.

Moreover, these rules would in any case be frustated if the disputes were brought before a court in a third country. It is advisable to state that the provision in question merely establishes a presumption in favour of the law of the country in which the immovable property is situate.

According to this special rule a party may rely upon the law of the country in which he has his habitual residence to establish that he did not consent if it appears from the circumstances that it would not be reasonable to determine the effect of his conduct in accordance with the law specified in paragraph 1. The purpose of this provision is to define the true aims of the uniform rules.

The Group adopted this proposal and consequently excluded arbitration agreements from the scope of the uniform rules, subject to returning to an examination of these problems and of agreements on the choice lagwrde court once the Convention has been finally drawn up. According to the preponderant view of theorists and consistent decisions by the Lagare of Cassation, the law applicable to the contract must be determined primarily on the basis of the express will of the parties ; only in default of such a nomination will the law of the contract be determined by the connecting factors stipulated in the abovementioned provisions Contracts for the carriage of passengers remain subject to the general presumption, i.

Setting up reading intentions help you organise your course reading. However, the Group deemed it inappropriate to submit contracts for the carriage of goods to the presumption contained in paragraph 2, having regard to the peculiarities of this type of transport. Agreement was also reached on lzgarde wording of a joint statement on the interpretation of the Convention by the Court of Justice, which followed word for word the matching statement made by the Governments of the original repprt Member States of the Community when the Reoprt on jurisdiction and enforcement was concluded on 27 September in Brussels.

The same applies to a change by a new agreement between the parties in the applicable law previously chosen.

They were discussed at a meeting of the rapporteurs chaired by Mr Jenard on 1 to 4 June Vermaas Scheepvaart bedrijf, with full support from legal writers Lagaree should be noted that the presumptions mentioned in paragraphs 2, 3 and 4 of Article 4 are only rebuttable presumptions. This interpretation, which emerges from the second sentence of Article 3 1has an important consequence.


Unlike the situation in France and Germany, in Italy the principle of freedom of contract of the contracting parties was expressly enacted as early as in the preliminary provisions of the Civil Code. Since the former text seemed to some delegations to be lacking in clarity, the Group decided to improve the wording.

As regards work done outside the jurisdiction of any State, the Group considered that the rule adopted in Article 6 could in principle be applied. Article 3 4 merely refers questions relating to the existence and validity of the parties’ consent as to the choice of the law applicable to the provisions of Articles 8, 9 and On the other hand similar institutions under continental laws falls within the provisions of the Convention because they are normally contractual in origin.

On the other hand, despite the opinion of some jurists, it must be frankly recognized that no clear indication in favour of the principle in question seems discernible in the English cases Ralli Bros lgarde.

In particular these experts emphasized lgaarde departures from the principle of the parties’ freedom of choice should be authorized only in exceptional circumstances, such as the application of the mandatory rules of a law other than that chosen by the parties ; they also gave several examples of cases in which the choice of a foreign law by the parties was fully justified, although there was apparently no other foreign element in the situation.

It is usually the case in a gihliano contract of sale that the law of the vendor’s place of business will govern the contract. It is the performance for which the payment is due, i. This inference however is not conclusive and can be rebutted by any contrary inferences which may be drawn from the other provisions of the contract and the relevant surrounding circumstances 20e.

On 18 May the Group’s chairman, Mr Jenard, sent the draft Convention to the President of the Council of the European Communities with rsport request that the Governments make their comments on the draft by the end of the year so that the Convention could then be concluded during The submission of the contract, in the absence of a choice by the parties, to the law appropriate to the characteristic performance defines the connecting factor of the contract from the inside, and not from the outside by elements unrelated to the essence of the obligation such as the nationality of the contracting parties or the place where the contract was concluded.
