Documentary Credits : Law and Practice
Documentary Credits are the most common means by which international sale of goods contracts are financed, and are also one of the most commonly litigated aspects of international contracts.
This book provides a thorough and critical analysis of the law relating to documentary credits, and in particular, of the operation of the UCP 500, as well as the law relating to those documentary credits that fall outside the scope of these rules. This book offers a comparative analysis based on key decisions that have been made outside UK jurisdiction.
This book is ideal for legal and industry practitioners, academics and postgraduate students of the banking sector.
