The papers in this collection are drawn from a symposium held in Vienna in December 2010. Organised by the Institute for European Tort Law and the Chicago-Kent Law Review, in collaboration with the European Centre of Tort and Insurance Law, the conference drew together legal experts from 14 national or regional systems across six continents. Medical malpractice and compensation for medical injuries are issues which regularly create tension and innovation in national legal systems but the analysis of these areas is often limited to national audiences. This study examines the issues in a uniquely global context, demonstrating the breadth of approaches currently taken around the world and revealing key areas of tension and the likely direction of future developments. Wherever possible, the analysis is supported by reference to empirical data. The 14 legal systems covered in the collection are Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Poland, Scandinavia, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. A general comparative introduction completes the collection.

Consumer protection law in the age of globalisation poses new challenges for policy-makers. This book highlights the difficulties of framing regulatory responses to the problem of consumers' access to justice in the new international economy. The growth of international consumer transactions in the wake of technological change and the globalisation of markets suggests that governments can no longer develop consumer protection law in isolation from the international legal arena. Leading scholars consider the broader theme of access to justice from socio-legal, law and economics perspectives. Topics include standard form contracts, the legal challenges posed by mass infections (such as mad-cow disease and CJD), ombudsman schemes, class actions, alternative dispute resolution, consumer bankruptcy, conflict of laws, and cross-border transactions. This book demonstrates that advancing and achieving access to justice for consumers proves to be a challenging, and sometimes elusive, task.

"This book analyzes the full range of complex legal issues that arise from domestic and international sales, leases and licenses. The author outlines preventive law tactics and planning strategies for all important aspects of domestic and cross-border sales, leases and licenses. The concepts of international contract law are illustrated through the activities of a hypothetical import/export company. The use of the hypothetical teaches practical as well as doctrinal principles of domestic and international contract law. This book uses practical examples and explanations to compare and contrast UCC Article 2 with CISG but also places licensing and leases in a global context. The book is divided into three parts so that individual instructors may select particular subjects which they wish to cover, in the order of their choosing. Each chapter provides helpful hints, practice points and practice problems in an accessible format.This comparative commercial law book is the first to provide extensive coverage of procedural, cultural and localization issues in cross-border commerce. The book is appropriate for a course in international contract law, sales and leases, or comparative commercial law."
