This book explores commercial contract law in scholarship and legal practice, suggests new research agendas and provides a forum for debate of typical issues that might benefit from further attention by scholarship and legislatures. The authors from over ten different jurisdictions take an international and comparative approach. Not confined to EU law it re-opens the debate internationally and seeks to reclaim the wider meaning of European law as rooted in geography and cultural legal heritage. There is a need to focus on commercial contracts in more detail in research and legislation. The transactional approach, the role of recent law reform, including the new French Civil Code, cross-border dealings, substantive contract law in public international law and ICSID arbitration as well as current contractual practices like OEM, CSR, contractual co-operation, sustainability and intra-corporate arbitration contribute to a wider regulatory outlook for commercial transactions.

The Association Henri Capitant des Amis de la Culture Juridique Française and the Société de législation comparée joined the academic network on European Contract Law in 2005 to work on the elaboration of a "common terminology" and on "guiding principles" as well as to propose a revised version of the Principles of European Contract Law (PECL). The results of this work were sent to the European Commission and have already been published in French. The English translation is now being published by sellier.elp. This work could contribute to the wider European project. The part on the guiding principles could be a component of the CFR, in the form of "black letter" model rules or recitals. The part on terminology is, in itself, useful for the elaboration of the final various linguistic versions of the CFR. It finds its place within the materials which will accompany the model rules. Last but by no means least, the revised version of the PECL should be considered by the European institutions as an alternative set of model rules on contract law.

Over the last few decades, banks, insurers, pension funds, investments firms and other financial institutions have become subject to sometimes dramatically new, but always substantially more, legislation. This is especially true for the EU. Moreover, Brexit has already caused profound changes to the dynamics of EU financial regulation, and its effects will likely become ever-more significant in the years to come. This book serves as a comprehensive introduction to these developments, and, more generally, to European banking and financial law. It is organised around the three economic themes that are central to the financial industry: (i) financial markets, (ii) banking and financial institutions and (iii) financial transactions. It covers not only regulatory law but also commercial law that is relevant for the most important financial transactions. This Second Edition has been completely revised. The basic structure of the First Edition has been maintained, but all chapters have been thoroughly rewritten and restructured. Attention is now also given to topics such as shadow banking and credit rating agencies. As a matter of course, all new relevant legislation and case law has been included. In addition, on the basis of real-life classroom experience, student questions and further reading suggestions have been updated and expanded.
