The place where academics meet the demands of transnational legal practice
The Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration, and Commercial Law has been established to advance the study and practice of international business transactions and the way to solve related disputes either through litigation or arbitration.
As commercial transactions become increasingly international, it is vital to the legal and business communities to understand and analyze the practices and legal principles that govern relationships between firms and between firms and consumers in the international arena. Subjects such as the appropriate degree of harmonization of domestic laws, sovereign and private lending to developing nations, choice of law in commercial transactions, the proper scope of international arbitration and litigation, and the role of private groups in promulgating principles that have international application will inevitably increase in importance in the immediate future, and both attorneys and their clients who are involved in projects that transcend national boundaries must have an increased understanding and appreciation of the implications of these areas.

The paper focuses only on the possibility for the parties to choose the law applicable to the merits of their dispute, codified in the new Article 822 CCP.
